The Vancouver Whitecaps had never won a Cascadia Cup match before Saturday, never beaten either the Seattle Sounders or Portland Timbers since joining Major League Soccer.
That drought finally ended, and Brad Knighton was a key reason for that.
The Whitecaps goalkeeper made seven saves, many of the outstanding variety, to help keep Seattle off the board and lead the Whitecaps to a 2-0 victory. A win that helped Knighton earn SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.
Knighton beat out a list of worthy candidates that included Robbie Keane, Bernardo Anor and Mike Magee for this week’s honors.
What did you think of Knighton’s performance? What MLS player impressed you the most in Week 19?
