For the second week in a row, Dwayne De Rosario reminded MLS fans and opposition that he's still got what it takes, despite being traded twice in the opening months of the season.
With his team playing a man down, De Rosario netted a hat trick against his former club to carry D.C. in its wild 3-3 draw with Toronto FC on Saturday, a performance certainly worthy of SBI's MLS Player of the Week honors. De Rosario won SBI POW honors last week for his two-goal outburst in a win over San Jose.
De Rosario has scored United's last six goals, and none of his teammates have scored in league play since his debut with the club against Philadelphia back on July 2. Nevertheless, D.C. is 2-1-3 in that time, and it's clear that its midseason acquisition is having quite the impact on the club's fortunes.
De Rosario stood the tallest during a week in which a number of players excelled, including Vancouver's Eric Hassli, Chivas USA's Alejandro Moreno, Los Angeles' David Beckham and Portland's Jorge Perlaza, among others.
What did you think about De Rosario's performance? Who was your top performer for the week?
