Luciano Emilio, the Brazilian striker who joined D.C. United this season from CD Olimpia of Honduras, won the MLS regular-season scoring title with 20 goals, edging another first-year player, Colombian Juan Pablo Angel of New York by a goal. The highest scoring American in MLS this season was New England's Taylor Twellman. For final MLS scoring stats and MLS leading scorer history ...

Emilio is the first MLS player to reach the 20-goal mark in one season since 2002, when current FC Dallas forward Carlos Ruiz scored 24 goals for the Los Angeles Galaxy and Twellman scored 23 for New England.

Among Emilio's 20 goals were four gamewinners, which tied for third most in the League. He and Angel tied for the most multi-goal games this season with five apiece.
