Los Super Cinco — Stars of Week One

Finally got around to looking at ProstAmerika’s player rankings from the opener and thought I’d rate the top performers from the season’s first game. It’ll be a weekly feature I call “Los Super Cinco” (The Super Five). I’ll adjust for losses and/or not-so-super showings.

1. Fredy Montero — Two goals, assist, MLS Player of the Week and Goal of the Week, first goal in Sounders FC history. Enough said.

2. Kasey Keller — The clean sheet and a couple of good saves, though rarely tested.

3. Osvaldo Alonso — Drew postgame praise from coach Sigi Schmid for his sound play in the midfield and made a huge difference in first goal.

4. Brad Evans — Scored a goal. Major contributor.

5. Jhon Kennedy Hurtado — Roughed up the Red Bulls’ attackers and helped take Juan Pablo Angel out of the game.

WIth a tip of the cap to reader MattHQ from Bellevue, whose photo caption from earlier this week was my favorite: “The new Sounders FC Dance Crew, the Soundawockeez.”

Well done, solid NBA All-Star Game reference. See the photo here.
