[MLS GOLEADORES] Will Bruin struck thrice for Houston in a 4-1 win over D.C. United and another rookie, No. 1 pick Omar Salgado, scored his first MLS goal. For an update on the MLS scoring race ...

* As the Houston Chronicle's headline put it, "Bruin bears scoring load." Rookie forward Will Bruin, a St. Louis product who scored 33 goals in three seasons at Indiana University, hit a hat trick for the Houston Dynamo in a 4-1 win over D.C. United.

* Columbus Crew striker Emilio Renteria scored both goals in a 2-1 win over Vancouver. The 26-year-old Venezuelan said that the game-winning strike was the first left-footed goal of his pro career.

* Vancouver's goal came from Omar Salgado, marking the first goal for the 17-year-old who was the No. 1 pick overall in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft.

* As Seattle copes with the loss to injuries of strikers Steve Zakuani and O'Brian White, midfielder Brad Evans scored twice and notched an assist in the Sounders' 3-0 win over Toronto FC. Evans scored just once last season.

* Philadelphia's Sebastien Le Toux, who scored 14 goals last season, scored his first of 2011 -- a gamewinner from the penalty spot in a 1-0 victory over San Jose.

 * After Week 7, MLS's goals per average is 2.52. Last season ended with a 2.46 goals per game average.

    This was one game that the refing and commontation were terrible. The score should have ended a 2-2 draw, Three terrible mistakes by the ref changed the outcome of this game, we definately need change in this country as well as getting better commontators for the games.
