American soccer fans had plenty to be proud of in MLS Week 24. For once, it had nothing to do with Clint Dempsey.
Alvaro Saborio continued his ascendancy over MLS competition on Saturday. The Costa Rican scored his ninth goal of the season in a 1-0 victory for Real Salt Lake. Camilo Sanvezzo followed suit with a goal of his own in a 2-0 victory for the Vancouver Whitecaps.
The Brazilian is now tied for the MLS Golden Boot lead with 14 goals.
The Chicago Fire also joined the winner's circle with a 2-1 victory at Toyota park. The club is now two points out of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference.
