On Saturday evening, Gabriel Torres showed exactly why the Colorado Rapids made him their first ever designated player when they signed him in August.
The Panamanian international star scored two goals in the Rapids 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps, including the game-winning-goal in the 77th minute on an absolute blast into the top corner. Torres’ stellar performance made him our choice for SBI MLS Player of the Week.
Torres beat out Nick Rimando, Matt Hedges, Tim Cahill and Diego Fagundez for this week’s honors.
