Premier Development League Championship tonight; 2005 MVP named

The night before Central Conference champion Des Moines Menace meet the Southern Conference champion El Paso Patriots in the Championship match, the PDL has selected their player and coach of the year.

MVP honors went to Daniel Frias of the El Paso Patriots. Frias led the Patriots to an 11-3-2 record with 17 goals and five assists in 11 games. He ranked fifth in points and third in goals in the league.

Indiana Invaders coach Methembe Ndlovu was named Coach of the Year. The second-year Invaders head coach led the team to its third straight 11-win season at 11-5-0, missing the postseason by one point for the second consecutive season. He was 11-5-0 in his debut last season also.

You can watch the PDL season come to a close tonight on Fox Soccer Channel. The match will be presented live, starting at 10:30pm EST. My guess is that El Paso will pull out a close victory over Des Moines.
