ROUND NINE (June 3-9)
Player – Club (5 Star Selections)
Jose Cuevas - Charleston Battery
Pair of goals in 4-1 win against Dynamo Reserves.
Ryan Finley - Columbus Crew Reserves
Pair of goals in a 4-4 draw at Dayton.
Kevin Harbottle - Colorado Rapids Reserves
Trailing 1-0 in the second half, he scored three goals in the final 15 minutes for the 3-1 win at Harrisburg.
Lance Laing - FC Edmonton (2)
Was a threat in the attack until forced to stay back after Edmonton lost a defender to a red card in a 1-1 draw at league-leading Atlanta.
Mauricio Salles - VSI Tampa Bay
It was against Antigua, but you have to show respect to a man who scores five consecutive goals in a pro game. Oh, and he added an assist on the finale as they won 8-0.
Close but not quite: Dom Dwyer (Orlando); Ben Speas (Crew Reserves); Pablo Campos (Minnesota)
