Matt Hedges helped lead FC Dallas to victory Saturday against a strong Toronto FC side, assisting on the game-winning goal and scoring one of his own to keep FCD as the team to beat. Hedges earned SBI MLS Player of the Week honors for his performance.
It was late in the 88th minute that Hedges helped FCD hold onto their No. 1 spot on the Western Conference table. A deep free kick was headed by Hedges before falling to Blas Perez for the game-winning shot.
In the 37th, Hedges got on the end of a near post corner kick from Michel and knocked it into the far netting, grabbing his second goal of the season.
Hedges beat out a group of contenders that includes Sporting KC’s Dom Dwyer, Seattle’s Clint Dempsey and Real Salt Lake’s Nick Rimando for this week’s honors
