It took him eight weeks, but Fredy Montero finally notched his first goal and assist of the season during MLS Week Nine, and both of them proved worth the wait.
Montero's long-range blast of a goal in Seattle's 2-0 win against the LA Galaxy, and his brilliant game-winning assist in Seattle's 1-0 win against Philadelphia helped the Sounders register a six-point week. Those plays, along with so many more he put in during a pair of quality performances, earned him SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.
Montero beat out San Jose's Chris Wondolowski, Real Salt Lake's Alvaro Saborio and Vancouver's Eric Hassli's for this week's honor. Montero's work in the Seattle attack gave defenses fits this week, and only some stellar saves and the woodwork kept Montero from stockpiling more goals.
