Three-goal week means another MLS POTW nod for Wondolowski By Steven Sandor Posted on September 24, 2012 Comments Off on Three-goal week means another MLS POTW nod for Wondolowski 0 533 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Chris Wondolowski PHOTO: LYNDSAY RADNEDGE Chris Wondolowski’s three-goals-in-two-games performance earned him the MLS Player of the Week award. Wondolowski brought his San Jose Earthquakes back from the dead in a midweek tilt against the Portland Timbers. Wondolowski scored to make it 2-1 Portland and then scored a stoppage-time equalizer. Wondolowski then scored the match winner in Saturday’s 2-1 triumph over the Seattle Sounders. It marks the third time in 2012 that Wondolowski, who now has 22 goals on the season, has been named the Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters. This week, he got 12 of the 19 first-place votes. How The 11 voted: Wondo. This was a pretty spectacular week for two-goal performances; Chris Rolfe got two for Chicago, Freddy Adu got two for Philly and Juninho got two spectacular markers for the Los Angeles Galaxy against Toronto FC, and smacked the bar with another long-range effort. But, without Wondo, there is no comeback in Portland. There is no three-point haul against the Sounders. It’s not just that Wondolowski scored three times; it’s that those goals directly led to points in the standings.
