Kah-BOOM! 'Caps centre back nominated for MLS Goal of the Week and named to Team of the Week

When Whitecaps FC fans talk about famous victories in Seattle, they will forever remember the name Pa-Modou Kah. In between congratulating Clint Dempsey on having kids (or so he told TSN viewers at halftime), the 'Caps centre back scored two goals worthy of a striker's highlight reel. His second goal, a brilliant backheel, is nominated for MLS Goal of the Week.

For his performance, Kah was also named to MLS Team of the Week. In addition, head coach Carl Robinson was awarded as coach for Team of the Week.

GK: Tim Melia (Sporting Kansas City) - Made a few big saves to prevent the Houston Dynamo from taking all three points at Sporting Park.

D: Pa Modou Kah (Vancouver Whitecaps FC) - Not only notched the brace as a defender, but six interceptions and three recoveries going well up the field were a big part of his team keeping the clean sheet.

D: Eric Gehrig (Chicago Fire) - Produced a sparkling defensive performance with six tackles and 10 clearances in the Fire's 2-0 win.

D: David Horst (Houston Dynamo) - Was a stand up defender all night, and was downright heroic on two occasions in the Dynamo's 1-1 draw.

M: Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy) - Made the most of his one opportunity. Gave Rapids problems getting in behind all game in the Galaxy's 3-1 win.

M: Chris Rolfe (D.C. United) - Scored United's first two goals after going down 2-0, jumpstarting the comeback that ended with a 6-4 win at RFK.

M: Matt Polster (Chicago Fire) - We'll let the Armchair Analyst explain his selection.

M: Shaun Wright-Phillips (New York Red Bulls) - Came off the bench to make his first appearance and was an instant sparkplug, winning a PK and assisting on his brother's game-winning goal.

F: Cyle Larin (Orlando City SC) - The rookie is simply on fire. Larin now has five goals in his last two games. After his two goals against Columbus, Larin is now tied with Damani Ralph for the most goals by a rookie in MLS history.
