MLS Reserve Division Leading Scorers
|The reserve division stats on MLSnet are incomplete for both 2005 and 2007; the pdf's for those seasons only go up to a certain point in the season. The former is only missing the final four games, but the latter is missing a huge chunk of the season, so I had to go through each match report and add up things by hand. Why is this important? Because the leading goalscorers listed on the pages for each season are therefore incorrect. I was looking up to see who won the golden boot each year, but I couldn't find it.|
Heh, I feel like I'm on an edition of Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage. Bottom line America: Major League Soccer should update the reserve division portion of their web site to include pdf's with full data for both the 2005 and 2007 seasons, so we can see who the leading goalscorers are without having to add up the stats ourselves.
Here you go. Be sure to note Chris Wondolowski's dominance, leading the league the past two years and finishing second in 2005. That's a total of 29 goals in 3 years. Ryan Pore is another reserve division god, finishing in the top ten in all 3 seasons as well. It appears he's near the top again this season too.
Note: If you judge this the same way as the normal MLS Golden Boot, then Wondolowski is the winner because he had 1 assist vs 0 by Hamilton.
