Two FCD players find themselves on the MLSsoccer.com team of the week and castrol index for Week 11

By Taryn Bray

Matt Hedges is having his best season yet having started in all 14 games of the season and his efforts in Saturday night's match earned him a spot in the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week for Week 11.

MLSsoccer.com had this to say about his performance: "Hedges helped disrupt RSL in the box by not allowing them to flood the area with runs. He also kept his concentration for the full 90 minutes to help Dallas earn their first shutout of the season in their draw on Saturday night."

In addition, Tesho Akindele has played in six games this season, started both games last week and even scored his first goal of his professional career on Wednesday in LA vs. the Galaxy. Akindele found his way onto the Castrol Index for Week 11
