MLS Team of the Week - Round 3's MLS team of the week keeps its Seattle-heavy feel in the third round, as the expansion team coasted to its third straight win. Also included are the two hat-trick heroes.

Kasey Keller (Seattle Sounders FC): Three games, three wins, zero goals conceded.


Carey Talley (Chivas USA): In four minutes, Talley provided a game-winning assist and drew Andy Iro into a red card tackle. He then batted on through injury because Preki had no defenders on the bench.

Jimmy Conrad (Kansas City Wizards): It's easier when playing on a half-sized pitch, but Conrad organized his defense in a solid clean sheet.

Bryan Namoff (D.C. United): Provided the Houston game's only assist and cleared a certain goal off the line.


Clint Mathis (Real Salt Lake): Since Javier Morales wasn't showing up, Mathis decided to control the midfied against the Crew instead.

Jesse Marsch (Chivas USA): The team has taken on the look of its captain's play: rough, gritty, tenacious, defensively sound, and effective.

Ricardo Clark (Houston Dynamo): He dominated the D.C. midfield, and the only goal was scored via a long ball that bypassed Clark's territory.

Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC): His close control in tight space, short passing, and vision kept the Seattle midfield ticking as the team dominated TFC.

Sainey Nyassi (New England Revolution): Out to prove he's the better of the Nyassi brothers, goals like that from Sainey will help his cause.


Conor Casey (Colorado Rapids): He started 16 seconds in, and didn't stop until his three goals gave Colorado an away win.

Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake): The last RSL player to score a hat-trick? RSL's current coach and scorer of 108 career MLS goals, Jason Kreis. Not bad company.


Kevin Hartman (Kansas City Wizards), Osvaldo Alonso (Seattle Sounders FC), Shalrie Joseph (New England Revolution), Sebastien Le Toux (Seattle Sounders FC), Omar Cummings (Colorado Rapids), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Nate Jaqua (Seattle Sounders FC)
