[MLS GOLEADORES] San Jose's Chris Wondolowski scored twice in two Week 16 games to pull him ahead in the MLS leading scorers' race. ... For the latest on the Golden Boot race ...

* Chris Wondolowski scored in San Jose's 2-1 wins over Colorado on Wednesday and Real Salt Lake on Saturday to give him a league leading 13 goals.

* Wondo won the Golden Boot in 2010 with 18 strikes. Last season he finished tied on 16 goals with D.C. United's Dwayne De Rosorio, who won the Golden Boot on the assist tiebreaker, having set up 12 goals to Wondolowski's three assists. De Rosario has five goals and nine assists so far this season.

* Will Bruin scored once in Houston's 4-2 loss to Montreal and twice in Wednesday's 3-3 tie with Toronto, giving him four goals in his last three games. With nine goals, Bruin, who scored five in his rookie season of 2011, is tied for third with New York's Thierry Henry, the Frenchman who hasn't hit the net since April

* D.C. United's Chris Pontius scored twice in Sunday's 3-2 loss to New York to give him eight goals this season and three in his last two games. The 25-year-old, who arrived in MLS in 2009, had his most productive season in 2011 when he scored seven goals.

    Is Wondo ever going to get a real shot, or is Klinnsman only going to give him a series of cameos? He has proven he can score goals for three seasons running.
