Michael Parkhurst and FC Nordsjaelland may not have won their season finale this weekend, but Parkhurst helped the club to a sixth-place finish in the Superliga with a 90-minute performance in a scoreless draw.
Parkhurst started and played 90 minutes in Nordsjaelland's match against FC Midtjylland on Sunday, ending his third season with the club. Parkhurst's performance gave him 21 appearances in league play this season.
Another defender who went the distance this weekend was Gale Agbossoumonde. The Djurgardens IF center back received his latest start for the club in a 1-0 loss versus IFK Goteborg in the fourth round of the Svenska Cupen.
