Wondolowski named NASR Player of the Month

Wondolowski wins monthly award after leading the league with five goals in October

San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski was named NASR Player of the Month for October on Monday.

The local product scored five goals in October, more than any other player in MLS, to tie D.C. United's Dwayne De Rosario for the league lead with 16 apiece. He scored in each of San Jose's four games during the final month of play.

Wondo took 14 of 18 first-place votes and was the No. 2 choice on the remaining four ballots in a poll by North American Soccer Reporters.

Fredy Montero of Sounders FC came in second with three votes and Chicago Fire’s Marco Pappa was the only other player to receive any first preference votes.

Wondolowski is tied with Edson Buddle and De Rosario atop the all-time goals list for the month of October with 11. Last year, Wondo scored six in the final month en route to his first career Budweiser Golden Boot.
