Paid Their Dues: Mad at Mwanga

Danny Mwanga continues to struggle for the Colorado Rapids as Justin Mapp and Jack McInerney continue to win soccer games/fight crime in Montreal.

Danny Mwanga made his fifth consecutive appearance for the Rapids, as he was in the starting line-up on Wednesday. Here is how he did:

Suffice it to say that our friends over at the Burgundy Wave have had enough of Danny Mwanga, who has not scored a goal in the 704 minutes he's spent in a Rapids jersey. His performance during the week inspired Steve Vockrodt to write this, which politely requests that Mwanga get lost. After recording 12 goals and eight assists over 2996 minutes in 2010 and 2011, Mwanga has only mustered three goals and two assists in the 1902 minutes he's played since 2012. Mwanga will likely find his way to USL PRO sooner or later. The Rapids don't have a USL PRO affiliate at the moment, but they will next season. If he is still with the team in 2015, he'll likely be playing with the third tier side in Colorado Springs. If the Rapids cut Mwanga loose before then, he could probably find work with a USL PRO team.

Bakary Soumare played two games this week: One against LA, the other against Colorado. Due to his performance against the Galaxy, named Soumare runner-up in their Man of the Match voting. Thanks to Danny Mwanga, Soumare didn't have to work very hard as Chicago posted a shutout.

Jeff Parke also came in second in MLS's Man of the Match voting, as he helped lead D.C. United to a 1-0 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday.

Justin Mapp and Jack McInerney enjoyed yet another successful week. In a 2-0 win over New England on Saturday, McInerney netted his sixth goal since joining the Canadian club in early April. On Wednesday, Felipe's stoppage time goal gave Montreal the right to lift the Canadian Championship trophy. The Impact will join New York's group in the CONCACAF Champions League.

Shea Salinas started in San Jose's 2-1 loss to FC Dallas over the weekend, but failed to make an impact, and came off after 67 minutes.

Jordan Harvey scored one in Vancouver's wild 4-3 victory over Portland.

Oka Nikolov let three goals past him, including a penalty, in Fort Lauderdale's 3-0 loss to the New York Cosmos.

Greg Jordan scored the first of Minnesota's two goals, as United defeated Atlanta. With one game left to play in the Spring Season, Minnesota is atop the table, three points clear of the Cosmos and Scorpions.

Morgan Langley scored on Saturday, but it wasn't enough, as the Harrisburg City Islanders lost 3-2.

Matt Kassel received a red at the end of Sacramento's 0-0 draw with Orange County.

Chandler Hoffman scored the winner for Los Dos, as they defeated Seattle's Reserves by a score of 1-0. This should not come as a surprise.

Levi Houapeu netted the winning goal for the Rochester Rhinos, who also won 1-0 over the weekend. Levi Houapeu!

Michael Orozco will be staying on loan with Puebla for another year, the club announced just the other day.

Faryd Mondragon made the final World Cup roster for Colombia. If Mondragon appears during a match, which would be unlikely, he would become the oldest player to play in the World Cup.

Gabriel Farfan was spotted at the StubHub Center for the Union's match against Chivas USA last week. It's unclear if he is returning to LA to play with the Goats after his loan to Mexican side Jaguares expired. Farfan splits his time between Southern California and Texas, where girlfriend Kaylyn Kyle plays for the Houston Dash.

Danny Califf became the first Bearfight FC player to get an international call up as he featured in the Legends Cup - a friendly between former United States and Mexican National Team players that featured names like Alexi Lalas, Brian Ching, Paul Caligiuri and Ante Razov for the US and Benjamin Galindo, Ramon Morales, Jorge Campos, and Francisco Palencia.
