Goalkeepers topped the charts this week in the Castrol Index Weekly Top 20. Chicago's Sean Johnson, Houston's Tally Hall and Philadelphia's Zac MacMath were Nos. 1, 2 and 3 respectively in the Top 20 performers.
Johnson earned 1,645 points by posting a shutout in the Fire's 3-0 win over D.C. United, 39 points ahead of Hall. Hall stopped all five shots on target while recording a clean sheet in the Dynamo's 1-0 win over Montreal Impact. MacMath – also the winning 'keeper in a 1-0 contest – stopped all four Toronto FC shots on target.
Three clubs each had a trio of players in the top performers of the week: Chicago, Colorado and LA. The Rapids were the club with the highest average finish, thanks to a 5-1 win over the suddenly struggling Seattle Sounders. Deshorn Brown, Drew Moor and Dillon Powers all came within the top 10 at Nos. 5, 7 and 8, respectively. Brown got 1,459 points for his brace; Moor earned 1,201 points for his steady defensive play and goal; and Powers, with a goal and an assist, earned 1,189 points.
