Hood River native and professional soccer player Matt Dallman was honored last week with the USL PRO league’s Assist Champion for his role on the Pittsburg Riverhounds. Dallman, a midfielder, set a new league record with 12 assists during the regular season. Dallman’s teammate, Jose Angulo, earned the league’s Scoring Champion award, and the 2003 Hood River Valley High School graduate was credited with assisting many of Angulo’s goals and a third of the team’s goals throughout the season. The Riverhounds ended in the middle of the pack in a 13-team league with a 10-8-8 record.
