2007 FCTP MLS Rookie of the Week...Week 6...

Another week down and FCTP is here with another Rookie of the Week selection. This week MLS saw 161 players take the field, two more then last week. 6% of those players were rookies. 80% of the rookies this week started their matches while 60% completed the entire game. Those are the highest percentages yet this season.

Complete Game:
Andrew Boyens
Maurice Edu
Michael Harrington
Aaron Hohlbein
Ty Harden
Dane Richards

Adam Cristman
Robbie Findley

Kurt Morsink
Sinisa Ubiparipovic

This week's ROTW will be a surprise to few who watched the games this weekend. While Harrington did score another goal, Cristman got his first goal to add to his three assists and Richards and Findley ran wild all over the field, north of the border gave MLS fans the most rookie excitement. Andrew Boyens helped marshal a defense that gave up one goal and Maurice Edu scored a beauty that looked as if it was scored in the Premier League or La Liga...not MLS. Toronto FC got their first victory and helped confirm that Real Salt Lake is the worst team in the league as the only remaining winless club.

For his cracker of a goal and overall solid play in midfield, Maurice Edu is our week 6 ROTW. If you didn't see the match get to for some highlights of his goal. Edu showed why he was the #1 SuperDraft pick in 2007. His career in MLS is off to a great start.
