[MLS GOLEADORES] Charlie Davies scored twice in his MLS debut, fueling a 3-1 D.C. United win over struggling Columbus. Davies, celebrating his comeback after suffering serious injuries in an October 2009 car accident, was one of three MLS players who scored twice in a game in Week 1 action.

* Davies entered in the 52nd minute and 10 minutes later converted a penalty kick. He followed up in the 77th minute by rounding Crew keeper Will Hesmer after beating defender Chad Marshall to a through ball.

* Mexican striker Omar Bravo, who joined Sporting Kansas City from Chivas Guadalajara, for which he's the second all-time leading scorer, debuted in MLS with a two-goal performance in a 3-2 win at Chivas USA.

* Another league debutant, Swiss league veteran Eric Hassli, scored a pair for Vancouver as the Whitecaps won their first MLS game, 4-2 over Canadian rival Toronto FC.

* Brazilian midfielder Juninho has done all of Los Angeles' scoring so far, providing long-range strikes in Tuesday's 1-0 win over Seattle and Sunday's 1-1 tie with New England.

* The goals per game average of 2.70 goals in Week 1 was a significant jump from last season's opening week average of 2.00, which laucnhed a season that ended with an all-time MLS low goals per game average of 2.46.
