[MLS GOLEADORES] Colombus' Andres Mendoza and Chicago's Dominic Oduro moved closer to the top of the leading scorer's race with strikes in Week 27. ...

* Andres Mendoza scored two from the penalty spot in Columbus' 2-2 tie with Houston to put him within a goal of leaders Landon Donovan and Thierry Henry. The 26-year-old Peruvian arrived to Columbus late last season and scored twice in eight 2010 appearances.

* Chicago's Dominic Oduro scored the gamewinner in the Fire's 3-2 win over Chivas USA. It was the 10th goal of the season for 26-year-old Ghanaian who played college ball at VCU. Oduro joined MLS in 2006 and had never scored more than five goals in a season in a career that included stints in Dallas, New York and Houston.

* Twenty-seven goals were scored in Week 27's 10 games for a 2.70 average and the MLS scoring rate improved for the second straight week. MLS's leaguewide goals-per-game average is now 2.57. The 2010 season ended with an all-time low 2.46 goals per game. MLS's second-lowest scoring year was the 2009 season, which ended at 2.54.
