MLS Week in Review: Goals, Goals, Goals

There were some marquee matchups on the slate this week as the conferences top dogs squared off, the US Open Cup Final featured a shot at history, and the decisive game of the 2012 SuperClásico unfolded.

The action lived up to the billing, too, delivering comeback thrillers, more heart-stopping heroics in San Jose and (cue the Mötley Crüe) goals, goals, goals — 25 in eight league matches, to be exact, for a healthy 3.125 per game.

Off the field, Montreal striker Marco Di Vaio was acquitted in a match-fixing scandal in Italy, Jurgen Klinsmann called 10 MLS players, including first-timers Matt Besler, Alan Gordon and Steven Beitashour, for the US national team’s upcoming friendly in Mexico City, and the league unveiled its new set of standings tiebreakers.

Let’s track it back.
