[MLS GOLEADORES] Landon Donovan and Thierry Henry each hit the net in Week 17 to extend their co-lead atop the scorers' list. For the latest on the Golden Boot race and video of Week 17 goal of the week nominees ...

* Landon Donovan scored his ninth goal of the season with a header off a David Beckham corner kick in the Galaxy's 2-1 win over Chicago. Beckham scored directly off a corner kick later in the game for his second strike of the season to go with his eight assists.

* The Frenchman Thierry Henry hit his ninth in a 5-0 rout over Toronto. The Red Bulls are the league's highest scoring team with 34 goals in 20 games for a 1.70 average. Toronto is at the bottom, scoring 17 in 21 games for a 0.81 average. Two other teams, Vancouver (0.95) and New England (0.89), are managing less than one goal per game.

* Seattle's Fredy Montero moved up the scoring table with two goals in a 3-2 win over Portland, including a free kick nominated for Goal of the Week. The Colombian, who also has four assists, has scored five goal in 2011. He scored 12 in his first MLS season, in 2009, and 10 least season.

* MLS's leaguewide goals-per-game average is 2.42. The 2010 season ended with an all-time low 2.46 goals per game.

    I am of the belief that in league play for golden boot award, that total points be counted, ie, both for goals an assists....reason: it is about choices, be selfish an shoot, or pass off to mate who may be in better position to score...strikers are supposed to do both...all things being equal, I would take the player with total combination points anytime..
