Villa, Azira and Curtin scoop ESPN FC's MLS Midseason Awards

All goals and highlights from Week 19 MLS.

We've reached the halfway point of the Major League Soccer regular season, and the league remains as unpredictable as ever.

One MLS Cup finalist from the last season, the Columbus Crew, is a point out of last place in the Eastern Conference. The Reigning MLS Cup winners, the Portland Timbers, currently occupy the sixth and final playoff spot in the west. The Seattle Sounders, who have never missed the playoffs in their eight-year MLS existence, are currently nine points below the red line.

FC Dallas selected former Portland Timbers striker Maximiliano Urruti with the first pick of the MLS Re-Enty Draft on Friday.

A day earlier, FC Dallas had traded allocation money to the Chicago Fire to acquire the top pick.

Urruti scored 15 goals in 67 appearances over three seasons with the Timbers, mostly playing as a late-game substitute.

He was one of Portland's heroes in the club's MLS Cup run, scoring the equalizing goal in the 118th minute to force penalties in the knockout round.
