TFC’s Koevermans wins MLS Player of the Week vote By Steven Sandor Posted on July 2, 2012 Comments Off on TFC’s Koevermans wins MLS Player of the Week vote 0 469 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter With two goals in two games, Danny Koevermans earned the win in the MLS Player of the Week vote. Koevermans won the balloting from the North American Soccer Reporters after scoring two goals over the course of a Toronto FC win and draw. Koevermans, used his size and power to connect on crosses for goals against the Montreal Impact and the New York Red Bulls. He becomes the first TFC player to be named POTW in 2012. How The 11 voted: Despite being a Canadian representative on the NASR panel, the TFC forward didn’t get our vote. His first goal against the Impact came when the score was already 2-0 for the Reds. The 11’s ballot was cast in favour of Chicago Fire keeper Sean Johnson, who made a series of ridiculous saves to give his team a 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City. The Fire was outshot 27-7 but came up with the win — and Johnson made a stupendous save late in the game off a Kei Kamara volley to preserve the win. No player was as responsible for his team getting three points this past week as Johnson was for the Fire. But, with TFC’s struggling this year, it’s easy for Koevermans to rally a sympathy vote — as voters may have seen it as the one time this year that a Red could get the honour.
