    Team of the Month:

    The Montreal Impact added 11 points to their total by going 3-2-0 in the month of June. Montreal has made the move to 4th in the Eastern Conference and looking to for a top 3 finish with would avoid the 1 game playoff between 4th and 5th. The man driving this surge is FW Braun with his 10 goals and 3 assists on the season. The question is, where can this team go with rookie wonderkid Andrew Wenger?

    Player of the Month:

    William Hesmer takes home the June Player of the Month for the Eastern Conference 5th place squad, Columbus Crew. Hesmer and company have only allowed 8 goals in 15 games so far this season. If Mirosovic and Co. can start to create an attack, this could be a team to watch out for. Until then, Hesmer continues to shoulder the heavy load of a MLS Cup goal.

    Record Breakers?:

    The all-time single season record in the MLS for goals in a season is held by Roy Lassiter of the now defunct Tampa Bay Mutiny with 27. As we round the bend of the halfway point of the 2012 season, keep an eye out for some of these challengers to the throne:

    Cummings - Colorado - 17 Goals
    Eddie Johnson - Seattle - 12 Goals
    Hassili - Vancouver - 11 Goals
    Salihi - DC United - 11 Goals

    As for assists, Carlos Valderrama filed 26! assists in the 2002 season, also for the Tampa Bay Mutiny. This impressive total will be a quite an achievement for the playmaker able to grab his 27th. Let's look at the 2012 assist leaders so far:

    De Rosario - DC United - 9 Assists
    Thompson - Colorado - 6
    Eddie Johnson - Seattle - 5

    MLS was always home to some great hair don'ts.

    If I hadn't had a light (in terms of number of games) June, the Crew would definitely had been my predicted team of the month!

    As always great writeup. Always a disappointment when I don't see my team or any of my players up there though haha. Only 3 games in June did that. 6 games this month. Look for lots of Sporting KC stats ;)
