The Portland Timbers may not have a win yet on the new season for manager Caleb Porter but they have their first Player of the Week winner in midfielder Will Johnson.

The Canadian international scored two goals, including a fairly controversial penalty kick to bring the Timbers back to level grounds with the Colorado Rapids on Saturday.

I had voted for Sporting KC’s Benny Feilhaber in this week’s voting for the NASR (the group that handles the weekly and month voting for the league). The votes were pretty split all over the place too.┬áJohnson landed 12 of the 30 votes this week followed by Graham Zusi and Feilhaber.
