The Quakes earned their first shutout win of the season against Vancouver on Saturday and a couple of Quakes defenders were awarded for their efforts!
Defenders Clarence Goodson and Marvell Wynne were named to the MLS Team of the Week for Week 6 on Monday, joining Ty Harden as the only Quakes player to recieve the honor so far this season. Goodson and Wynne were apart of a backline that limited MLS leading goal-scorer Octavio Rivero to zero shots on the night. In all, the Quakes held Vancouver to zero shots on target and one corner kick.
Well done, boys!
