He may not even be 21 years old yet, but Jack McInerney is scoring goals like a seasoned veteran.
McInerney scored two first-half goals on Sunday in the Union’s 3-2 victory over D.C. United, a brace that pushed his recent run to four goals in three matches, and six on the season. His exploits in Sunday’s win helped him earn SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.
McInerney scored his first goal in the seventh minute, taking a pass from teammate Conor Casey before slipping past the D.C. United defense and finishing into the far post. The second came in the 26th minute off a long throw-in from teammate Sheanon Williams, with McInerney finishing into the far post with the left foot once more.
The 20-year old beat out Landon Donovan, Nick Rimando and Aurelien Collin for this week’s honor.
