[MLS GOLEADORES] Chris Wondolowski, who led MLS in scoring last season with 18 strikes but rued missed chances in San Jose's opener last week, a 1-0 loss to Real Salt Lake, scored both goals in San Jose's 2-0 win at FC Dallas to set an MLS record by scoring 12 consecutive regular-season goals for the Quakes dating back to last season. Charlie Davies scored in D.C. United's 2-1 loss to New England to take the league's scoring lead.

* Real Salt Lake's Argentine playmaker Javier Morales scored from the penalty spot and from long range -- and tallied an assist -- in the first half of a 4-1 home win over Los Angeles that RSL coach Jason Kreis called "probably the best soccer I’ve seen in this stadium [from] this team."

* FC Toronto newcomer Javier Martina scored both goals in his team's 2-0 win over the Portland Timbers. The 24-year-old Dutchman took a pass from Dwayne De Rosario and stroked home from six yards for the first. His second was set up by goalkeeper Stefan Frei, whose punt Martina met at the edge of the penalty area and after a bounce volleyed into the net off the far post.

* Davies' third goal of the season was his second from the penalty spot.

* The league-wide goals per game average after two weeks of play is 2.53. Last season ended with a 2.46 goals per game average.
