The Portland Timbers picked up their first win of the season and second straight Player of the Week winner in Week 6. Last week it was midfielder Will Johnson and after his two goal effort over the Houston Dynamo, striker Ryan Johnson claimed won this week’s award.

The votes were very, very split this week though. As you’ll see, I had Johnson and my number two was Colorado keeper Clint Irwin. Johnson took the selection based on a tiebreaker after he and Chicago’s Maicon Santos finished tied with nine votes as Johnson had 10 second place votes among the 30 ballots to Santos’ six.

The Fire’s Daniel Paladini was also a major contender with seven votes, giving the previously winless club 16 total on the week. Also worth noting is the three votes Clint Irwin of Colorado received.

Two other Timbers players picked up first place votes as well. So in all, a pretty good week for those Portland Timbers fans out there.
