“He knows it is ‘player number twelve’ who stirs up the winds of fervor that propel the ball when she falls asleep, just as the other eleven players know that playing without their fans is like dancing without music.” – Eduardo Galeano

But without further ado, here are this week’s listings:
Professional Game of the Week: San Jose Earthquakes vs. FC Dallas
When: Friday April 14, 8:00 p.m.
Where: Avaya Stadium, San Jose
Additional Info: After securing a late point last week against Seattle Sounders FC thanks to another Chris Wondolowski goal, the San Jose Earthquakes (2-2-1) face arguably their stiffest test of the young season when they welcome unbeaten FC Dallas (3-0-1) to Avaya Stadium. Those interested in the status of youth development in this country should tune into this match, as FC Dallas have proved to be the standard bearer in MLS producing quality young players such as 21-year-old Kellyn Acosta, who has already amassed five caps for the United States. Tickets are available here.
Amateur Game of the Week: Sonoma County Sol vs. CD Aguiluchos USA
When: Saturday April 15 7:00 p.m.
Where: Casa Grande High School, Petaluma
Additional Info: Up in Wine Country, we have an early season top-of-the-table clash in the NPSL’s Golden Gate Conference. Much of the division could be decided Saturday night as neither the Sonoma County Sol (2-0-0) or CD Aguiluchos USA (3-0-0) have dropped a single point in this young season. Tickets are available at the gate.
