Cubo gets a "hat trick" of POTM awards with the September honor.

Chivas USA have a clear leader in the team scoring race this season, with Erick Torres rocketing up the scoring charts since arriving this summer. He's also clearly a fan favorite by this point, as he has now been voted Chivas USA Player of the Month by the readers of The Goat Parade for the third consecutive month.

Although six players received votes for their performances in the month of September, Cubo still outpaced the competition, winning once again. He started in all six matches for the Goats last month, scoring three goals, bringing his total for his MLS career to date to seven. He scored both goals in Chivas' 2-2 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps, and also notched the winner against D.C. United.

I suppose the question at this point is whether Torres can finish off the season with the October honor as well. Chivas have played one so far this month, and have two games to go in the season. Don't worry, we'll put up the poll when the time comes!
