[SA WEEK 11 TEAM OF THE WEEK]Rare wins for FC Dallas and San Jose earned players on those teams mention in Week 11, and the scoring form of Colorado forward Conor Casey got him another nod as well as Player of the Month honors from MLS.

GOALKEEPER
Kasey Keller (Seattle)

Thwarted Emmanuel Ekpo with a stunning save just before halftime with the Sounders trailing, 1-0, and played his usual strong game as they came back to tie the defending champion.

DEFENDERS
Mike Zaher (San Jose)

The second-year man out of UCLA celebrated his first MLS start with a great cross for an assist and relentless play at left back as Quakes notched only their second win of 2009.

Drew Moor (FC Dallas)

Led a smothering defensive effort against a fatigued Fire team as Dallas nursed a 2-0 lead for more than an hour until a Kenny Cooper free kick added the third goal. Moor helped subdue the usually dangerous Patrick Nyarko.

Eric Brunner (Columbus)

Played two very solid games in the middle alongside Chad Marshall as the Crew beat San Jose at home and earned a point in Seattle with a 1-1 tie. Headed back a deep cross for Eddie Gaven to score tying goal against the Quakes, headed clear a goalbound shot by Seattle's Pete Vagenas.

Andrew Hainault (Houston)
Since replacing an injured Wade Barrett just before halftime against the Revs May 2, Hainault has played every minute while the Dynamo has conceded just two goals in nearly 400 minutes.

MIDFIELDERS
Ryan Johnson (San Jose)

Scored in his third straight game in a 2-1 loss at Columbus, then caused RSL all sorts of problems and forced two good saves from Nick Rimando as the Quakes ended their five-game losing streak with a 2-1 win.

Brad Davis (Houston)
Netted a goal on a free kick and rolled another to Stuart Holden, who fired it home as the Dynamo scored three times in four minutes to beat Toronto, 3-0. Davis leads MLS with seven assists.

Mehdi Ballouchy (Colorado)
Dangerous on the right flank as the Rapids beat New York, 3-2. Assisted on the first goal and converted the decisive penalty as Colorado finished the month of May unbeaten (2-0-2).

FORWARDS
Conor Casey (Colorado)

Added two more goals and leads the league with eight after the Rapids downed New York, 3-2, to hang onto fourth place in the Western Conference.

Kenny Cooper (FC Dallas)
Tested Fire keeper Jon Busch early with a header, connected with teammates by good passing, and scored third goal in 3-0 win with superb free kick.

Steve Ralston (New England)
Assisted on the equalizer, used his touches well, and converted stoppage-time penalty as the undermanned Revs rallied to beat D.C. United, 2-1.
