A two-goal performance against Kitsap in Tuesday’s U.S. Open Cup third-round match has earned Mike Fucito player-of-the-round honors from TheCup.us.

Sounders FC, the two-time defending champion of the tournament, has done quite well in such voting in the past, as you might expect:

Fucito’s honor marks the sixth time in the past three tournaments in which a Sounder has been recognized as TheCup.us Player of the Round. Only three other players have managed to knock Seattle from the spotlight in their nine rounds of play thus far. Jaqua was honored in the Quarterfinals and Semifinals with two-goal performances with Sanna Nyassi taking the honor with two strikes in the Final. In 2009 it was Sebastien Le Toux in the Semifinals and Fredy Montero in the Championship.

And if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a video of the ECS serenading Fucito with a chant based off the tune of Biz Markie‘s “Just A Friend.”
