Before MLS Week 10 began, Harrison Shipp, Javier Morales and Diego Fagundez had combined for zero goals this season. By the end of the weekend, the trio had combined for eight goals, and three spots on this week’s SBI MLS Best XI.
Shipp’s hat trick helped topple the New York Red Bulls, while Fagundez’s brace helped New England halt Seattle’s red-hot run. Morales turned in an SBI MLS Player of the Week effort with his three-goal, one-assist outing in Houston.
Vancouver’s 1-0 victory over the Columbus Crew had to be extra sweet for Matias Laba, who was outstanding in the middle of the park against the team that passed on him when offered him last off-season. Gregg Berhalter’s comments about Laba not being anything special might have made it on to a bulletin board because Laba turned in his best game since arriving in MLS.
Here are the rest of the SBI MLS Best XI selections for Week 10:
