MOST COMMENTED

[TEAM OF THE WEEK] Players from the two teams -- Toronto and Houston -- stood out in last weekend's play, including Amado Guevara, who struck twice for the Canadian club.


GOALKEEPER
Josh Wicks (D.C. United)
On a weekend of strong goalkeeping performances, Wicks was one of two (Jon Busch being the other) to register a shutout, and he earned it, staving off several Real Salt Lake thrusts to scratch out a 0-0 tie.

DEFENDERS
Craig Waibel (Houston)

Scored a goal, hit a few good crosses, and played a rugged game at right back to mark his first start of 2009 as Houston ran its unbeaten streak to six by downing San Jose, 3-1.

Robbie Russell (Real Salt Lake)
Threatened several times on the right flank to create chances in the tie at D.C., and also tracked back to intercept a dangerous through ball from Santino Quaranta.

Wilman Conde (Chicago)
Though the Red Bulls took 19 shots, only a last-minute effort by Danleigh Borman seriously tested Fire keeper Jon Busch as Conde played a solid game in the middle, winning head balls and covering for errors committed by central partner Bakary Soumare.

MIDFIELDERS
Brad Davis (Houston)

In a 3-1 defeat of San Jose, Davis earned assists on the first two goals with precise dead balls, and the third goal came after his corner kick had been partially cleared. His six assists lead MLS, and he's registered all of them in the past five games.

Amado Guevara (Toronto FC)
Drilled home a first-time shot from well outside the box to cancel out an early goal conceded to the Revs, and applied the final goal in a 3-1 victory by bending a free kick that eluded everyone and bounced into the net.

Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake)
Bossed the midfield for much of the match, set up a great chance for Robbie Findley with a through ball, and nearly scored with a trademark long-distance striker that required an excellent save by D.C. United keeper Josh Wicks.

Colin Clark (Colorado)
Made a late run from his wide slot to score on a feed from Omar Cummings and from the flank slipped a diagonal ball that Conor Casey turned into a goal as the Rapids tied Seattle, 2-2.

FORWARDS
Fredy Montero (Seattle FC)

Renowned more for his feet, Montero used his head to help Seattle tie Colorado, 2-2. He pounced on the rebound of his own shot off the post to head home the first goal, and nodded down a cross for Nate Jaqua to score the equalizer.

Danny Dichio (Toronto FC)
With a clever layoff he set up TFC's first goal, and his slick reverse pass set up TFC's second in a 3-1 defeat of New England. On the third goal, he charged into the goalmouth during a free kick to distract keeper Matt Reis. A fine day's work to prove he's got brain as well as brawn.

Conor Casey (Colorado)
Netted his sixth goal of the season with a dribble and deflected shot, and constantly pressured the Seattle defense in a 2-2 tie.
