Union’s Jack McInerney Named MLS Player of the Week


Philadelphia Union striker Jack McInerney was awarded MLS Player of the Week honors for his strong performance against DC United this past Sunday.  McInerney had a brace (two goals) on the day, picking up his first goal in the 7th which is up for MLS Goal of the Week (WATCH) and his second to give the Union a 2 goal advantage, in the 26th (WATCH).  With those two goals, the young striker leads the MLS golden boot race early in the season with six goals.

McInerney, along with being named Player of the Week, is also up for nomination in MLS’ top three performers, along with teammate Conor Casey.  With a match against New England coming up this Saturday, McInerney will look to keep up his scoring ways, having told the media that winning the golden boot this season is definitely in the back of his mind.  Union vs. New England is this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET on The Comcast Network.
