Time to update my Timbers "of-the-Week" awards and nominations. If I am missing anything then please let me know. To see the results for the entire season, visit my web site at scooterracer.com.
Week 22 didn't get the Timbers much, what with losing to San Jose Earthquakes. But, it did net yet another MLS Save of the Week for the Shakin' Jamaican, Mr. Donovan Ricketts, and that's just one more reason why he should have been selected to play in the All Star match. Then again, seeing how that turned out, perhaps it is better that he skipped it after all.
Week 22 final results:
- Donovan Ricketts won MLS Save of the Week, for the eighth time this season.
- Will Johnson was named to MLS Castrol Weekly Top 20 Index at number 18.
