Houston Dynamo forward Alberth Elis is on a tear, and he's been rewarded for his performances with a spot on the MLS Team of the Week for Week 5, presented by Audi.
Elis played a part in all four of the Dynamo's goals during a 4-1 road win over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday. He began the night with a deft pass to set up Memo Rodriguez's goal in the fourth minute, then forced a pair of own goals from the Rapids as he terrorized the right flank. La Pantera then capped his night with a goal of his own, finished a team sequence with a tidy touch and poke under pressure to beat Tim Howard.
It's Elis' second Team of the Week nod after earning the honor in Week 3. The Honduran forward has been involved in each of the team's last seven goals after his one goal, two assists performance against the Montreal Impact.
