Fabian Castillo and Mauro Diaz had epic matches in Houston on Friday each scoring a goal and two assists. For their efforts, they were both named to the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week for week 9 of the MLS season. Castillo has been named to two of the last three TOTW's, four this season and currently sits tied for the MLS lead with five assists in nine appearances.

Here's what they had to say about the performances:

M: Mauro Díaz (FC Dallas) – If his goal and two assists against Houston are any indication, it was worth the wait to get Diaz back and in good form for FC Dallas, as he had one of his best games in MLS against the Dynamo.

M: Fabián Castillo (FC Dallas) – Castillo was the yang to Diaz’s yin for FCD, and part of his genius is that he’s able to pull off both spectacular skill and tangible production, as he notched a goal and two assists as well.

Additionally, head coach Oscar Pareja was named as the coach of the week:

Coach: Oscar Pareja (FC Dallas) – Had his team flying against their rivals as both Diaz and Castillo had their skills on full display against the Dynamo.

Diaz and Castillo, as well as captain Matt Hedges, earned nods from Goal.com for their team of the week as well.

Our May Scarf of the Month is dedicated to the best mascot in MLS, our very own Tex Hooper!

You may not be Tex Hooper, but you can look like him with this fun design which, on one side, has the Tex Hooper name mark with the FC Dallas logo which comes together when you wear it. On the other side is where the magic happens with Tex Hooper horns that make you look like Tex when you hold it up to your head.

Now, normally you hold the scarf high above your head, but this one is best held like you see to the left with Victor Ulloa.

This unique scarf will definitely sell out, so be sure to stop by the team store this week or at Saturday's match against Los Angeles to get your brand new May Scarf of the Month dedicated to the big man, Tex Hooper!

We just got done watching FC Dallas #CrushTheOrange at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston last Friday and while you'll have to wait until the end of June for another MLS Texas Derby, our FC Dallas Academy hosts the Dynamo this Sunday in the annual Academy Day at Toyota Stadium! 

The U-18s kick things off at 2:00PM in what is not only the final home match for our graduating U-18 players, but it's an enormous match in the standings.

Just a few weeks ago, the U-18s were ten points behind Houston in the Frontier Division standings, but a 7-0-1 run in their last eight games coupled with the Dynamo slipping up last weekend means the U-18s are only five points behind Houston with five games left including two games in hand on their I-45 rivals. 

As everyone knows, results are not the be all end all when it comes to developing players, but FCD has won the U-18 division nearly every season of existence including the last two years and we want to defend that title. 

The U-16 match follows at 4:30PM and if you haven't seen these guys play, they're dang fun to watch. Wingers Devin Vega and Toshiki Yasuda have combined to score 34 goals in 20 games this season while the entire squad has logged an incredible 17-2-3 record this season. They can seal the U-16 Frontier Division with four games left in the season if they grab a win on Sunday.

Admission is completely free, there will be street tacos and drinks on sale and you have a great opportunity to see the future of FC Dallas on a special day for them as they close out their home schedule in the 2014-2015 season before the playoffs begin! 

*NOTE* Please enter through the north gates on Sunday.

We're just a little over 24 hours away from the first Texas Derby pres. by Novo Nordisk of 2015 and the local Univision sports anchors in Dallas and Houston have made the first bet of the weekend. 

Sports anchor Enrique Gonzalez from Univision 45 in Houston threw the first salvo challenging our very own Pedro Silva of Univision 23 to a friendly wager.

 

Reto #TexasDerby

Este fin de semana se enfrentan en la MLS el HHouston Dynamovs. FFC Dallas razón por la cual Enrique González lanza el reto desde Houston a Pedrito Silva de Univision 23 DFW ¿quién gana el #Texasderby ? ¿Aceptas Pedro?

Posted by Noticias 45 Houston on Wednesday, April 29, 2015

 

For those who don't speak spanish, Enrique challenged Pedro to a bet of whoever's team wins the first round of the Texas Derby, the other anchor will have to wear the winning team's jersey on the air. Of course, Pedro was quick to accept the challenge knowing that FC Dallas is pretty much guaranteed to get the W on Friday night.

 

¡Reto aceptado! Este viernes el FC Dallas visita al Dynamo en Houston. Si gana Dallas Mi colega Enrique Gonzalez se pone la playera de los toros. Si triunfa Houston se invierten los papeles. #DTID #TexasDerby

The young flair of FCD's attack was on full display Friday night in Colorado as Fabian Castillo and Mauro Diaz combined to score one of the prettiest goals you'll see in MLS this season. Castillo put the Rapids defense on ice skates with one of his trademark jinking runs through the box before playing the perfect ball to Diaz who smashed home his first MLS goal in nearly a year to put FC Dallas up in the first half. 

The fantastic assist, which really made the goal in this case, was Castillo's third of the year already just one assist shy of his 2014 mark of four only eight games into the season. He's also already halfway to his highest career total of assists which he set in 2013. 

Vote Mauro(and Fabian) for Week 8 AT&T MLS Goal of the Week!
