Week 6 of the 2015 MLS season is, somehow, already in the books — didn’t the season just start yesterday? — and it’s been a fun ride thus far, despite the severe uptick in 0-0 draws this season.
This past week provided the most shocking result of the young season, and for their hard work, the Colorado Rapids land a pair of players in my MLS Team of the Week for Week 6, a feat no other team can claim this week.
Kei Kamara finally saw some of his extremely bad luck from Weeks 1-5 turn good in Week 6, as the Columbus Crew SC striker bagged a pair of goals in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with the Vancouver Whitecaps, while Darren Mattocks reminded everyone in the same game — as he periodically likes to before disappearing for another three months — why he was the No. 2 overall SuperDraft pick in 2011 and long thought to be the league’s best young striker.
Thoughts? Questions? Agreements? Disagreements? (Of course not.) Leave them in the comments section, as always. I’m not afraid to defend my picks.
