Hat-trick hero Lamar Neagle wins MLS Player of the Week

neagle mug.jpgThis probably shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, but Sounders FC midfielder Lamar Neagle was named MLS Player of the Week this morning after his marvelous three-goal performance in Saturday’s 6-2 win over Columbus.

Recording just the second hat-trick in franchise history, Neagle became the fourth Sounder to win the award this season (Jeff Parke, Week 10; Fredy Montero, Week 17; Mauro Rosales, Week 18).

The Federal Way native was also nominated twice for MLS Goal of the Week.

Neagle, 24, has five goals this season and a team-leading 0.68 goals-per-90-minutes average (Steve Zakuani is second at 0.4).

“It’s great for Lamar,” said coach Sigi Schmid after Monday’s practice. “It’s a great story for him. He dedicated himself … worked hard and it’s great that it’s worked out for him this year.”
