[MLS GOLEADORES] Goals remain rare in MLS as Week 12 produced only a dozen in 10 games.

* Week 12 games averaged a paltry 1.2 goals per game as this season's goals-per-game average dipped to 2.33. Last season ended with an all-time low 2.46 goals per game.

* Three Week 12 games ended in 0-0 ties, pushing the number of scoreless games this season to 13.

* Danny Mwanga, Philly's 2010 No. 1 draft pick, scored his fourth goal of the season in the Union's 1-1 tie at defending champ Colorado. The 19-year-old, who also has four assists this season, scored seven goals last season.

    This is not big news about low scoring in the MLS. Anyone ever try to figure out that simple turnovers and bad decision-making on the pitch is the root cause of low scoring. Look at Davies' miss v the galaxy after rounding the fallen defender and keeper, one extra touch to keep his balance and score,turned into a hurried off-balance miss. And how about Josh Wolf of DC who couldn't put two clear chances on frame from several yards out, pitiful.
