David Estrada named MLS Player of the Week

estrada mug 2012.jpgIn what was surely an easy call for voters, Sounders FC forward David Estrada was named MLS Player of the Week after a sublime performance in Saturday’s league opener.

The 24 year old had all three Seattle goals in a 3-1 win against Toronto FC. He becomes the 14th Sounder to earn the honor (first this season, obviously).

In the end, the vote was nearly unanimous.

Estrada’s hat trick was the third in club history, matching midfielder Lamar Neagle (August 27, 2011 vs. Columbus) and forward Blaise Nkufo (Sept. 18, 2011 at Columbus). He also became just the third MLS player to score three goals in his team’s first regular-season game, joining Brian Ching (April 2, 2006) and Jason Kreis (March 20, 1999).

Estrada has scored four of the Sounders’ six goals in all competitions this season. Brad Evans and Alvaro Fernandez have the others, both in CONCACAF Champions League action.
