And now he has an award to show for it.
On Tuesday, Dockal was voted the Alcatel MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for Week 17.
Dockal opened the scoring with a left-footed strike from the right side of the box in the 24th minute, curling a shot into the bottom left corner of the goal.
Despite registering zero goals and one assist through his first five games in a Union uniform, Dockal now has five goals and six assists, leading the team in both categories.
The Alcatel MLS Player of the Week is chosen each week of the regular season by members of the North American Soccer Reporters. The organization includes print, television, radio and online journalists who cover domestic men's soccer in the United States and Canada.
