In addition to picking up two wins last week, and in addition to Erick Torres' selection as MLS Player of the Week for his two-goal haul in those two games, four Chivas USA representatives were named to the MLS Team of the Week for Week 17 on MLSsoccer.com on Monday.
Joining Torres on the Team of the Week were defenders Carlos Bocanegra and Donny Toia, who helped the Goats post their second and third shutouts of the season (and third in a row). Additionally, head coach Wilmer Cabrera was named coach of the Team of the Week, for starting and extending CUSA's first winning streak of the season.
It's the second straight week there have been CUSA representatives in the Team of the Week, following Torres and defender Tony Lochhead last week.
The recognition of Toia in particular is welcome, as the youngster has worked his way up the depth chart this season, his first with Chivas USA, and he's shown a proficiency at both left back and right back.
Congrats to all four for the selection!
