The Sports Network

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Montreal Impact forward Jack McInerney was named the Player of the Week on Monday for Week 16 of the 2014 Major League Soccer season.

McInerney scored an impressive brace on Sunday to lead the Impact to a comfortable 3-0 rout of Eastern Conference rivals Houston Dynamo at Stade Saputo.

McInerney scored his first goal in the 42nd minute when he got his head on the end of an Eric Miller cross.

He then found his second of the game and sixth in 10 regular season matches since joining the Impact in the 75th minute when he spun and half-volleyed the ball into the far right corner. It was also the 30th goal of his career, becoming just the 85th player to reach the milestone in the league.

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from the North America Soccer Reporters (NASR). The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
