Bernstein makes it four goals in two games in Norway

Who's the hottest American right now? Clint Dempsey, who shares the MLS scoring lead with Kei Kamara, isn't doing too badly, but he can't top Rhett Bernstein, who scored four goals in the space of four days for Norwegian club Mjondalen.

Norway, 2015 Tippeligaen:
GP/G PLAYER, TEAM
8/2 Cole Grossman, Stabaek
8/0 Alex De John, Start
7/4 Rhett Bernstein, Mjondalen
6/0 Zarek Valentin, Bodo/Glimt
5/0, A.J. Soares, Viking
4/1 Danny Cruz, Bodo/Glimt
0/0 Josh Gatt, Molde
0/0, Ethan Horvath, Molde

The 27-year-old Bernstein, playing his first season in the Tippeligaen, scored twice -- the second goal in stoppage time -- to lead Mjondalen to a 3-2 win over first-place Rosenborg.

Danny Cruz scored his first goal on loan to Bodo/Glimt from the Philadelphia Union in its 1-1 tie at IK Start. Fellow American Zarek Valentin set up Cruz's goal, a driving shot with the outside of the right foot.


Rosenborg's loss allowed Bob Bradley's Stabaek, a 4-0 winner over Sandefjord, to move into a tie for first place. Stabaek has run off a league record six straight shutout wins after opening the season with a tie and loss.


ENGLAND. Veteran defenders Oguchi Onyewu and Zak Whitbread are both looking for clubs after being released by their English League Championship clubs.

Onyewu, a veteran of 14 seasons in Europe, played three games for Charlton Athletic. Whitbread, who has played 12 seasons, all in England, had nine appearances for Derby County in 2014-15.

Jonathan Spector, a veteran of 12 seasons in England, was recently offered a new two-year deal.
