Matchday 14 was all about the home teams dominating, as twelve victories and three-draw were recorded by those who played on their home grounds. Last weekend Major League Soccer matches brought out some fabulous performances, including the one that was close to making Major League Soccer history in Houston. Here's my own compiled list of Major League Soccer most deserving individuals for week fourteen.

Club of the week

The Revs put together a “gritty” stalemate with New York City FC last week Wednesday at the Yankee Stadium and then went on to beat Toronto Football Club at home last Saturday. Forward Xavier Kouassi last minute equaliser last week Wednesday earned the New England Revolution a bit of “momentum” heading into last Saturday's home tie, as they took full advantage of a struggling Toronto Football Club team to earn maximum three points in front their home crowd.

For this stellar performance put together, the New England Revolution earns my Team of the Week recognition.

Best player and rookie of the week

FC Dallas in-form striker Roland Lamah notched the second fastest hat trick in Major League Soccer history last Saturday evening, as Dallas whitewashed Real Salt Lake at the Toyota Stadium in Texas. Belgian forward Roland Lamah took total control of the porous defending from Real Salt Lake and brilliant efforts from his teammates helped knock-in hat trick in a span of thirty-one minutes. Lamah has scored four goals in his last two matches. Based on my personal estimation, Roland Lamah earns the Player of the Week honor.

A week after notching his first professional career goal with Colorado Rapids in the Major League Soccer, the 21-year-old midfielder Kortne Ford also made fabulous dirty jobs in the core defense in Colorado Rapids' 2-1 triumph over Columbus Crew SC.

Prior to this encounter, Kortne Ford has made the team's starting XI lineup in the last three matches. Kortne Ford earns my Rookie of the Week recognition.

Best goal of week 14

Undoubtedly, there has not been many commendations circling RSL of late, but witty forward Joao Plata did score a superb free-kick to put Real Salt Lake on the score sheet against Houston Dynamo last week Wednesday.

Joao Plata's brilliant free kick goal earns my Goal of the Week.

Coach of the Week

New England Revolution head coach Jay Heaps earns the recognition of Coach of the Week honor for tactically leading his side to a fine performance against two MLS powerhouses; New York City FC last week Wednesday and Toronto FC last Saturday.
