Clint Dempsey was expected to be the main show in town when the Seattle Sounders visited the Houston Dynamo on Saturday, but Giles Barnes reminded the home fans that he could still find the back of the net.
Ending a 12-game scoring drought, Barnes bagged a brace to lead the Dynamo over the Sounders, 3-1, including a long-range blast that may be a Goal of the Year nominee. Barnes’ performance earned him SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.
Barnes beat out Robbie Keane, Marco Di Vaio, and Federico Higuain for this week’s honor.
