One clean sheet, two goals, and all three points? Week 22 was a good one for Real Salt Lake's Chris Schuler, and the Castrol Index backs that up.
The Weekly Top 20 rankings put the RSL defender as the clear No. 1 for the week, as he put in a complete performance to help RSL defeat D.C. United, 3-0, on Saturday.
Behind him in the Top 5 is a varied cast: Seattle Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei (No. 2), who saved a penalty en route to a shutout win against the Houston Dynamo, and Luke Moore (No. 3), who scored the winner for Toronto FC vs. the Columbus Crew. LA Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez (No. 4), got the equalizer in a pulsating draw against the San Jose Earthquakes, while Rodney Wallace (No. 5) scored as well, in the Portland Timbers' 2-0 win over Chivas USA.
