* Henry hadn't hit the net since July 28. But on Saturday he finished cleanly after latching on to a long-range pass from Rafa Marquez and scored directly off a corner kick. In between, he assisted on Dax McCarty's goal in the win over Columbus. It was Henry's ninth assist of the season and the Frenchman is tied for fourth in scoring with 13 goals. ... Henry scored 14 goals last season.

* Wondolowski scored from the penalty spot to give him a league-leading 19 goals -- a personal season record after winning the Golden Boot in 2010 with 18 goals and scoring 16 last season.

    Wondo got didn't get soccer scholarship offers out of high school -- they wanted him as a middle distance runner. Now the National team won't have him because he's too slow. 19 goals and 7 assists ain't too shabby. Surely given the USMNT pathetic goal scoring record, they could at least give a proven goal poacher a chance? Sure he doesn't look like a great forward, but he's smart, and works his tail off. And oh ya, he can run all day, so he actually comes back into the midfield, and on D, and works his tail off there also. How can Hercules Gomez be the flavor of the month when he was a bust in MLS? and Wondo not get a real chance?
