Benny Feilhaber accomplished something this weekend that he's only done once before in his career: he scored a goal at the club level.
A week after providing two assists and helping force an own goal, Feilhaber netted the equalizer for AGF Aarhus in its 1-1 tie against Hobro. Feilhaber scored off a well-taken penalty kick in the second half to keep Aarhus atop the table in Denmark's second division.
Another pair of Americans also found the back of the net. Clint Dempsey scored the equalizer in Fulham's 1-1 draw with Blackburn, and Clarence Goodson headed home from close range in IK Start's 4-2 triumph against Stromsgodset.
It wasn't all good news this weekend. Michael Bradley and Borussia Moenchengladbach were blown out for a second straight game, losing 7-0 to VfB Stuttgart. Jonathan Spector also failed to dress for a second consecutive week in West Ham's 1-1 draw versus Stoke City.
