Players to watch
Jose Hernandez: He might be Plata-height, but his midfield play is much bigger than that. He'll scrap for possession with the best of them, but he'll also dribble around three players and score a goal. He has 25 goals on the season.
Damian German: One of the real breakout players at the academy, German leads the team in goals scored — and there have been plenty. Of the team's 161 (!!!) goals, German had 34.
Diego Silva: An attacking left back, Silva's prone toward goalscoring, too (but who isn't in a team that's scored 161 goals, that's a must) — watch for him bursting up the flank to make an impact.
