Winning a game 4-0, like the Dynamo did against the New England Revolution on Saturday night, usually means that there were some standout performances on the field. A couple of those individual performances on the field garnered attention from MLSsoccer.com, and landed Will Bruin and Boniek García on their Team of the Week for Week 1.
Here's what they had to say about Bruin's two goal, one assist outing: "Responds to the naysayers who questioned his finishing with two fantastic strikes in the opening 13 minutes. Will this set the tone for the year? We'll forget the 1-v-1 in the second half on which he should've done better."
García was on the receiving end of Bruin's assist, which he finished with authority after a late midfield run: "Spectacular performance by the Honduran international, who is omnipresent and even more impactful in the center of the field. Makes things happen when the ball is at his feet."
David Horst was also honored as one of seven bench players on the Team of the Week for his part in helping to keep a clean sheet in the first match of the year.
