New York, NY – Houston Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis was named the Major League Soccer Player of the Week for week seven of the MLS season on Monday.
Davis was instrumental in helping the Dynamo to a 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire on Sunday as he assisted on the first goal and netted the winner in the 81st minute, allowing Houston to extend its home unbeaten streak to 35 matches, which sets a new MLS record.
Will Bruin tallied the opening goal for Houston in the 26th minute from a Davis cross, and the midfielder broke a 1-1 deadlock nine minutes from time when he delivered another cross into the area that went untouched on its way into the corner of the net.
