SBI MLS Player of the Week: Alvaro Saborio

Real Salt Lake broke out of their four-game winless streak this past weekend, and Alvaro Saborio was the man largely responsible for that.

Saborio inspired RSL to a 3-0 victory over the Portland Timbers on Saturday, scoring a second-half hat-trick that raised his goal total to 10 on the season. Saborio scored off a pair of headers before burying a penalty kick in the match, and that earned him SBI's MLS Player of the Week award.

Saborio was the clear winner of the award, but honorable mention went to Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall, Freddy Adu of the Philadelphia Union, the Los Angeles Galaxy's Robbie Keane and Patrice Bernier of the Montreal Impact.

What do you think of Saborio winning SBI MLS Player of the Week award? Do you agree? Think Saborio is going to go on a scoring tear after this hat-trick performance?
