  • 2013 MLS Season, Mike Magee, Player of the Month

Forgive me for the lack of posting today, I’m just a tad caught up in some things. But I did want to post my vote for the MLS Player of the Month award for March out there.

Today, it was announced that LA Galaxy forward Mike Magee was named the league’s first player of the month in the 2013 season. Magee scored a league-high five goals in the opening month for the Galaxy. But for me, his bigger contributions were in other places on the field like leadership when Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane were both missing.

Magee opened up the month with a hat trick against the Chicago Fire and added in two more by the end of the month.

I know some folks thought otherwise on this and picked Montreal midfielder Patrice Bernier, a good pick as well. Bernier was my second pick in the voting, which you can see here.

Magee took 17 of the 36 votes cast compared to 15 for Bernier with the other four ballots going to four different individuals.
