Crew's Oduro nabs Player of the Week honor

 

The Sports Network

Columbus Crew forward Dominic Oduro was named the Player of the Week on Monday for Week 31 of the 2013 regular season.

Oduro was a driving force for Columbus as he scored and added an assist in his club's 4-2 win over FC Dallas on Sunday at Toyota Stadium. The Ghanaian forward set the tone for the Crew's victory when he set up Jairo Arrieta's 17th minute goal before adding a tally just before halftime.

The result thursts the Crew further into the crowded Eastern Conference playoff picture as the club sits just one point behind the Philadelphia Union for the final postseason berth.

The MLS Player of the Week award is selected each week by the North American Soccer Reporters. The group consists of members of online, print, television, and radio media.
