[MLS GOLEADORES] Chris Wondolowski scored three goals in two Week 9 games to overtake sidelined Thierry Henry for the scoring lead. For the latest on the Golden Boot race ...

* Wondolowski scored twice in San Jose's 5-3 win over D.C. United on Wednesday and once in the Quakes' 2-1 loss at Vancouver to give him 11 in 10 games this season, two more than the Red Bulls' Henry, who injured his hamstring after scoring his ninth goal last week.

* Wondolowski won the Golden Boot in 2010 with 18 goals. Last season he tied on 16 goals with D.C. United Dwayne De Rosario, who won the Boot on the assist tiebreaker, having set up 12 goals while Wondolowski had 3 assists.

* MLS is averaging 2.49 goals in its first 85 games of the season. Last season ended with an average of 2.58, the second lowest in MLS history following the anemic 2.46 produced in 2010.
