Among the highlights of the Dynamo Reserves' 2-0 win yesterday morning over the Kansas City Wizards Sporks are a couple of very nice finishes from Alex Dixon and Colin Clark. When thinking beyond this season, it's getting pretty clear that Dixon is a serious asset. Check out the moves he makes to create space in a dangerous area before cooly finishing the chance. This kid could just become 2012 Dynamo Park's first breakout star. (Of course, now that I've written that, I've probably jinxed him utterly.)

With the win, Los Najaranitos finished the season at 6-4, second in the Central/Mountain Division of the MLS Reserve League. Not bad.

Here's the box from the press release:

One question I have is what exactly was Danny Cruz doing playing in a reserve match for 62 minutes three days after the Portland win?

Take a look at the highlights and tell me if you notice anything interesting.
