Andrew Driver and Brad Davis earn MLS Team of the Week honors
The accolades keep coming in for Houston midfielder Brad Davis. The Dynamo's captain as well as midfielder Andrew Driver (pictured, above) were selected to the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week following their performance against the Chicago Fire on Sunday.
Davis assisted on the team's first goal and scored the game winner as the Dynamo extended their home unbeaten streak in all competitions to an MLS-best 35 straight games. Davis was also voted Man of the Match by the fans, earned MLS Player of the Week honors from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) and was named a top-3 performer in the league for week 7.
Driver started his second consecutive game on the right flank for the injured Boniek Garcia. The English midfielder was a menace on the wing, helping the Dynamo earn six corner kicks on the night and neutralizing Fire left back Gonzalo Segares.
In addition to Davis and Driver, head coach Dominic Kinnear was selected by MLS as the coach of the week. MLSsoccer.com's Nicholas Rosano had this to say about Kinnear:
Not only did his team make MLS history by notching its 35th straight without a loss at home in all competitions, they did it in an efficient, workmanlike way with a well-thought out and well-executed game plan.
The Dynamo hit the road this week looking for their first win away from BBVA Compass Stadium in 2013. Houston will take on Toronto FC Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. on KPRC Local 2 (2:30 pregame show).
