Once again a Dynamo player is getting some recognition in MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week, but this time for offense. This week, Giles Barnes was named to the team of the week for his two goal night against Chivas USA and overall solid performance on Saturday night. Here’s what the editors had to say about Barnes’ performance on Saturday:
“Ran roughshod on Chivas’ defense and put in the effort on the defensive end to go with his two goals. He looks like a man on a mission in 2014.”
It was Barnes’ third two-goal game since joining the Dynamo in 2012 and first since last September, when Chivas USA was again on the wrong end of a big night from Barnes. The Dynamo will try to carry the momentum to their match against the Columbus Crew on Wednesday at BBVA Compass Stadium.
