Across State Lines: Former Players Win MASL Title with San Diego

An update on former Kansas City players.

Thad Bell

The 2021 MASL season came to a conclusion this past weekend in California as the Ontario Fury hosted the San Diego Sockers for the series. San Diego won the first leg on Friday night 7-3 continuing their strong run in the post season. Sunday night the Fury won the second game 6-5 in overtime to force a game 3 mini game to see who would win the championship. The Sockers scored with just under a minute left in the period to win 2-1 and win the MASL championship. The Sockers team had four players on the roster with ties to Kansas City with former Wizards and Comets player Boris Pardo in goal, former KC draft pick, Mitchell Cardenas on defense, former UMKC and Comets player Guerrero Pino, and former Comets player Travis Pittman. Pittman is the only one of the four that did not play a role in the championship series for the Sockers.

In other news, former Sporting KC striker, Dom Dwyer is trying to find a new club after his contract with Orlando City expired at the end of the 2020 season. Dwyer was seen on the FS1 broadcast of Toronto FC’s game against Leon celebrating with the Toronto players after they’d won the series. The next day it was reported that Dwyer was on trial with the Canadian club looking to earn a contract.

Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
