Romell Quioto lands on the MLS Team of the Week for Week 8

Houston Dynamo forward Romell Quioto landed a spot on the Week 8 MLS Team of the Week presented by Audi for his performance against Toronto FC.

Quioto, starting for just the second time this season, helped create all five of the Dynamo's goals in Saturday's 5-1 win over Toronto FC. He created and turnover and passed off to Mauro Manotas for the first goal of the afternoon, then delivered a cross that fell to Leonardo for the second goal. Two second half crosses led to goals from Eric Alexander and Alberth Elis, then he collected his own goal in the 77th minute.

All told, he finished with two assists to go with his goal, completing 27 of 32 passes, seven of seven dribbles, and 11 crosses. Read more about Wilmer Cabrera and Alberth Elis' reaction to Quioto's performance here.
