Visiting teams don’t generally make it a habit of going to BBVA Compass Stadium and dominating the Houston Dynamo’s tough defense, but Javier Morales did just that and did so from the opening seconds of Real Salt Lake’s 5-2 thrashing of the Dynamo.
Morales notched three goals and an assist against a Dynamo defense that just had no answers for him, and the complete performance helped earn Morales SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.
From his dazzling opening goal just 16 seconds into the match, to his pinpoint pass to set up Luke Mulholland’s finish, Morales turned in his best performance of what has already been an outstanding season.
Morales beat out a strong field of candidates that included Harrison Shipp, Dom Dwyer, Bradley-Wright Phillips and Marvin Chavez.
What did you think of Morales’ performance? Which player impressed you the most in MLS Week 10?
