After a dominating 3-matches-in-8-days run from Columbus Crew SC, forward Gyasi Zardes is currently tied for the league’s Golden Boot lead. Zardes has scored eight goals in 12 games for Columbus this season, even with Altanta United’s Josef Martinez.
Individuallly, this ranks as the second-highest goal-scoring season for Zardes and a halfway point to his best after scoring a high of 16 goals in 2014.
With his brace on Saturday and midweek goal, Zardes has landed a spot on MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week alongside Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter and goalkeeper Zack Steffen (bench). Zardes was also voted Acura’s Man of the Match for his performance against Chicago on Saturday.
