The Dynamo attack's breakout performance against Montreal Impact helped propel Giles Barnes & Rob Lovejoy into the spotlight in Week 6, as both the striker & the rookie were named to MLS Team of the Week. Not one to be left out, GK Tyler Deric also made the bench with 5 saves to walk away with his 3rd clean sheet of the season.
Find out who else made the team below: (via MLSSoccer.com)
GK: Jaime Penedo (LA Galaxy) - Made 10 saves, more than half of them top-caliber, almost single-handedly ensuring Seattle left LA with nothing despite what Brad Evans called “their best game this year.”
M: Lloyd Sam (New York Red Bulls) – Aside from his opportunistic late leveler, RBNY's flying winger was sharp and menacing going forward all evening in D.C., as the Red Bulls came from behind to tie their Atlantic Cup rivals.
M: Perry Kitchen (D.C. United) – Two goals, both of them dispatched clinically and authoritatively, were the unexpected highlights of his performance. What wasn't surprising was his usual contribution of range and steel in deep midfield.
F: Giles Barnes (Houston Dynamo) – The Englishman came out to play on Saturday night. He was dangerous all night, taking six shots and using a flicked header to score Houston's opener.
F: Dominique Badji (Colorado Rapids) – Badji's work up front was tremendous all game, hounding the Dallas back line. Of course, it started with a goal in the 2nd minute.
Coach: Adrian Heath (Orlando City) – After some disappointing losses, Heath's team came to Portland to play and took home three points.
Bench: Tyler Deric (Houston Dynamo), Seb Hines (Orlando City), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy),Sacha Kljestan (New York Red Bulls), Vincent Nogueira (Philadelphia Union), Matias Perez Garcia (San Jose Earthquakes), Cyle Larin (Orlando City)

Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Tyler Deric is chasing a rare Save of the Week four-peat, with the Homegrown backstop nominated yet again after taking home the honor in Weeks 2 and 3 and 4 of the MLS season.
Among those trying to end Deric's streak are Toronto FC goalkeeperJoe Bendik, who stoned back-to-back, point-blank attempts from the Fire, and D.C. United's Bill Hamid, who snuffed out a promising Orlando City counterattack with a sliding stop on Kevin Molino.
The New England Revolution's Bobby Shuttleworth was nominated for a left-handed swat that pushed over the crossbar what would have been the Rapids' first goal of 2015. And a defender is among the challengers, with Brek Shea in for a lunging, goal-line clearance on a Chris Pontiusattempt that halted a sure opener for D.C. United.
Vote HERE for your top save! The winner will be announced on Friday.
