Chris Pontius endured a rough second season as a professional, dealing with injuries that marred his sophomore campaign after a rookie season that earned him national team consideration.
He has recovered in impressive fashion to put together another strong season, and had arguably his best game of the year on Saturday, scoring two goals in D.C. United's 4-0 win vs. Vancouver. The performance was good enough to earn Pontius SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.
Pontius edged out several other good candidates, such as Toronto FC's Joao Plata, Philadelphia's Sebastien LeToux and Chivas USA's Dan Kennedy to name a few.
