Castrol Index Weekly Top 20: New England's Matt Reis No. 1 for Week 2
For a goalkeeper who was unsure whether he had the starting job heading into Week 2, Matt Reis made sure there were no doubts after Saturday.
The veteran, who is in his 16th season in the league, was solid in goal for the New England Revolution in a 1-0 road shutout of the Chicago Fire with his four-save performance topping the Castrol Index Weekly Top 20.
A total of six MLS goalkeepers broke into the Top 20 with five in the Top 10. See how players collect points in the Castrol methodology here.
Finishing just 12 points behind Reis was Vancouver captain Kenny Miller, who was buzzing all over the field and scored a goal in a 2-1 win over the Columbus Crew.
A total of 13 teams figured on the list with seven teams represented by two players, including Oswaldo Minda and Juan Agudelo for Chivas USA.
The notable absence: MLS Player of the Week Robert Earnshaw, whose two goals were not enough to make the cut.
