On this episode of 10,000 Pitches, things begin on an important yet somber note, as Dominic discusses the tragic passing of a childhood friend, serving as a reminder that life is fragile and to connect with the ones you love.
On the soccer side of things, Jeremy and Dom discuss MNUFC's win over Houston, Dibassy's injury, the dud in Salt Lake, and the challenge ahead against FC Dallas. The guys also touch on MNUFC2's playoff hope-ending loss to Houston.
In D1 college action, the Gophers get their first win, St. Thomas women have an up and down week, and the Tommie men start slow in California.
Elsewhere, St. Cloud men start with a pair of wins and a draw, and the NSIC is off and running.
There were some notable storylines from Minnesotans in the pros this week, as Morgan Turner scores early in her debut for Portugese club Toreense, Annie Williams signs with Parma, and Mukwelle Akale starts his first two matches with South Georgia Tormenta.
Finally, Top 4 includes the Chelsea-Pulisic saga, San Diego making history, and this weekend's USOC Final.
