Black & Gold by the Numbers: August 22

By Tim Miller

5-0-3

After taking an early 2-0 lead against LA, the Crew earned a crucial trio of points at home in a 4-1 victory last Saturday. With the win, the Black & Gold are unbeaten (5- 0-3) in 2014 when leading at halftime.

21/12

Last Saturday saw a four-goal performance for the Crew behind a couple of season-high statistics on the shooting side. The 21 total shots matched a season high from the June 4 draw against Real Salt Lake, while the 12 shots on goal are a new season benchmark as the Black & Gold buried one-third of their total shots on frame for goals.

The Crew’s Steve Clark, Giancarlo Gonzalez and Tony Tchani were named to MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week following Saturday’s 4-1 win over the LA Galaxy. With three players on the list in Week 23, it’s the Black & Gold’s highest total of the season. Justin Meram was named honorable mention.
