[HOMEGROWN WATCH] Playing at home, the FC Dallas U17-U18 academy team recorded the biggest win in its history when it beat Spanish club Barcelona's Juvenil B team (mostly U-17 players), 3-1, in Sunday's Super Group action at the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup. FC Dallas homegrown players Jon Top and Victor Ulloa teamed up for the first goal scored by Top, and Bryan Leyva, the first FC Dallas homegrown signing, fed Daniel Garcia for the third.

U.S. under-20 international Moises Hernandez also started for FC Dallas.

In its second game on Monday, FC Dallas shut out Cartagines of Costa Rica, 3-0, on goals by U.S. U-18 Jack Coleman, Victor Pinal and Leyva. It will advance to the semifinals with a win or draw against Japan's U-18 national team.

Three other MLS teams are represented in the Super Group.

Vancouver Whitecaps split their first two games, beating Corinthians of Brazil, 3-2, and losing to Tigres of Mexico, 2-0. American homegrown signing Brian Sylvestre was in goal for the Whitecaps

RSL-AZ, Real Salt Lake's Arizona-based academy team, lost to Tigres, 3-1, and Corinthians, 4-1. Among the players with RSL-AZ are RSL's first homegrown signing Donny Toia and former U.S. U-17 star Luis Gil.

Tigres features a trio of U.S. U-20s: Moises Orozco, Victor Garza and Emilio Orozco.

The Houston Dynamo lost to Coritiba of Mexico, 2-0, and Eintracht Frankfurt of Germany, 3-0.

CORDON DEBUTS. Midfielder Oscar Cordon made his MLS debut for Toronto FC, coming on as a sub in its 0-0 tie with Los Angeles and then starting against D.C. United three days later.

Cordon, one of four TFC homegrown signings in the spring, joined the TFC program in 2009 from the Mississauga Falcons. He played for Toronto in the Nutrilite Canadian Championship and CONCACAF Champions League last year.
