Dynamo make return to Castrol Index

By Jonathan Kaplan

It's been five weeks since Dynamo players were featured in the top 10 of the Castrol Index. To be honest, I'm starting to think the Castrol Index is like a quarterback rating in football. It's confusing to calculate, but it looks great when your player has a high ranking! This week, three Dynamo players are featured in the top 20. After his game-tying goal against the Crew, Brian Ching totaled 1,125 Castrol points for a No. 7 ranking. With a goal and an assist, Will Bruin comes in at No. 13 with 1,062 points. Lastly, Andre Hainault made a game-saving clearance off the line in the 88th minute to preserve a 2-2 draw at Crew Stadium. Below is the top 20 ranking for week 7 in MLS.
