So he's playing with the U18 team? Too bad he can't play for a PDL side .

I couldn't find the detail in that article. The U18 team doesn't seem correct. Perhaps they are referring to a PDL side affiliated with the Crew.

I'm pretty sure there's a team in Seattle that wouldn't mind another Akron midfielder joining them.

It's quite possible Trapp will play for the PDL club Michigan Bucks an affiliate of the Crew. Chad Barson played there last season.

There is a Crew Juniors U20 team which is referenced here (Crew 20): http://www.thecrewyouth.com/CrewJuniorsGold/index_E.html. I vaguely remembered Chad Barson and Ben Speas played for a Crew U20 Development Team that won a USL Super-20 Championship last summer, and after some searching, here's that link: http://www.thecrew.com/news/2011/07/crew-j...-national-title

Looking over it again. Barson only played 4 games with the Bucks, probably splitting time with the Crew's U20 competitions is what I'm assuming. As all 4 Bucks games were spread out over 3 months.

Kayvon Afsarifard, Orange County Blue Star

Woah, Jay Göppingen used to play for Orange County Blue Star! and if you don't know who that is, look it up, it's an interesting fun fact.

I admit I didn't recognize Jurgen Klinsmann by that pseudonym, but I had read that he played for the Blue Star.

Is Orange County Blue Star comparable to Hollywood United FC or Hollywood All-Stars? Need more Vinnie Jones. One of my classic favorites is the Vinnie Jones halftime cursing rant.

The full roster isn't there yet, but a couple of Zips (Barson, Caldwell) showing up on Michigan Bucks 2012 roster.

Edit (May 15): Thomas Schmitt also on roster now.

Seattle Sounders off to a great start opening weekend in Canada with a win over Whitecaps and a tie against Victoria. Yedlin and Quinn played well for the Sounders.

Bucks Too Much For Jersey Shore

The second half started in a much more subdued fashion for both teams, with Jersey Shore playing down a man and the Bucks in complete control. Bucks head coach Gary Parsons made a couple of second half substitutions early bringing in Thomas Schmitt and Ethan Miller to lead the offense and both would figure in the second half scoring. Schmitt, the University of Akron leading scorer this spring, would set up Catalano for the games fourth goal in the 74th minute.

Michigan Bucks and Chicago Fire are tied at 2 a piece as the 90th minute approaches in Open Cup play. Any idea if any of our guys are playing?

Barson and Caldwell are both in, here's the stream. LA Galaxy were defeated by Carolina 2-1.
