Darren Mattocks picked a good time to score his first professional goal, netting the equalizer in Vancouver's 1-1 draw vs. Cascadia rival Portland on Saturday.
The goal, one of several scored by MLS rookies this past weekend, made Mattocks our pick for SBI MLS Rookie of the Week. Mattocks beat out a strong field of rookies who did well in the past week's slate of games. 2012 MLS first-round picks Andrew Wenger, Matt Hedges and Austin Berry all scored goals last week.
Its only a matter a time before he kicks down the door to the natl team. Right now the Door is just hanging from the hinges. He's threat to score not only from ground but also from the air , making him more versatile than Cummings and Shelton.
