The Mutiny's Mamadou Diallo and Steve Ralston, whose team was folded by Major League Soccer on Tuesday, will be reunited in New England.

Diallo was selected with the second pick in Friday's allocation draft and Ralston with the sixth.

"I'm not really an East Coast kind of guy," said Ralston, a native of St. Louis who recently bought a home in Tampa. "That's going to be an adjustment."

Fusion defender/midfielder Pablo Mastroeni was the first player drafted, by Colorado. The six teams owed an allocation pick by the league were eligible for the draft.

New York/New Jersey, which did not have an allocation but made a trade with Colorado for its fourth pick, selected forward Diego Serna.

Devin Barclay was the only other Mutiny player taken, eighth by San Jose. Dallas used its seventh pick to take Tampa Bay's No.1 overall pick in the MLS draft, scheduled for Feb.10.

The Mutiny's Eric Quill (first round, fourth pick), Josh Keller (first round, fifth pick) and Eric Denton (first round, ninth pick) went in the dispersal draft that followed. Fusion midfielder Chris Henderson was taken first overall by Colorado in the dispersal draft.

Mutiny players not selected were: Steve Trittschuh, Joe Addo, Adin Brown, Ali Curtis, Jair, Gus Kartes, John Lowery, Chad McCarty, Danny Pena and Diego Sonora.

Miami had 14 players chosen from its 19-man roster. The Mutiny had six.
