Perez & Diaz earn Castrol Index Honors

By Daniel Robertson

Two FC Dallas players earned spots on the weekly Castrol Index Top 20 list for their performances in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Columbus.

Midfielder Mauro Diaz came in at #4 on the weekly index, the highest such ranking for an FCD player since Blas Perez's week 26 performance against San Jose on August 24.

Forward Blas Perez popped up on the list this week as well with a #15 spot after his first-half goal, his team-leading 11th of the season.
