Wenger’s goal was up for MLS Goal of the Week.

Dillon Duo Sets Up Rapids Winner: Colorado Rapids Academy alumni Dillon Serna and Dillon Powers helped set up an Edson Buddle goal and Colorado held on for a 1-0 victory against Toronto FC on Saturday. Powers, who was the Man of the Match for his efforts, dished near the end line to Buddle just above the six-yard box for the game-winner, which was Buddle’s 99th career MLS goal.

Elsewhere, a pair of alumni had assists during the 1-1 draw between the Portland Timbers and Chivas USA. Internationals SC alum Darlington Nagbe assisted Will Johnson’s seventh-minute goal for Portland, and Albertson SC product Andrew Jean-Baptiste helped set up Erick Torres’ equalizer in the 79th minute for Chivas.
