For the second straight week, Thierry Henry catapulted the New York Red Bulls to victory. For the second straight week, Henry found the back of the net and set up a goal. For the second straight week, Henry was named SBI MLS Player of the Week.
Henry earned the honors after a performance in which he scored his first MLS hat-trick and assisted on another goal in the Red Bulls' 5-2 win over the Montreal Impact on Saturday. Henry, who currently leads the league in goals scored with five, was key to the Red Bulls bouncing back from a dismal first half and putting together a dominant second against the expansion Impact.
Henry beat out Portland Timbers forward Darlington Nagbe, who scored two good goals in a loss to Real Salt Lake; Maicon Santos, who netted twice and assisted once in D.C. United's rousing win over FC Dallas; and Kyle Beckerman, who netted the late winner for RSL against Portland.
