Week 5 of the 2018 MLS season provided many things. It had high scoring games featuring arch rivals, outstanding comebacks, and quite possibly one of the most impressive volleys the league has ever seen.

But, let's face it, this week belong's to one man, and one man alone, and it wasn't Dominique Badji.

Best of MLS Week 1: Tyler Miller, Diego Rossi, and more

Week one was a banner week for the newest team in MLS.

Los Angeles FC faced a difficult away test for their MLS welcome party and they didn't disappoint. Their 1-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders at Centurylink Field featured a stellar goalkeeping performance, a rookie having a strong debut, and a wonderful goal from a Uruguayan teenager.

The Best of MLS Week 34: Leonardo, Portland Timbers, and more

This week saw players and teams not normally in the spotlight come through with big goals and big results.

No one in MLS had found a way to extinguish red-hot Real Salt Lake heading into Week 8, but the LA Galaxy concocted the perfect remedy.

The LA Galaxy were adamant about picking up three points in Seattle, and they delivered on that end with an emphatic victory over the Sounders.

The Galaxy went into the tough venue that is CenturyLink Field and defeated the Western Conference-leading Sounders, 3-0, on Monday night.

It wasn't a glamorous week forMLS rookies, but don't tell Marlon Hairston that.

The Colorado Rapids midfielder wasn't in the starting lineup for the Colorado Rapids'weekendmatch against Chivas USA, but his talents were certainly needed when Jared Watts went down with an injury in the 42nd minute.

SBI MLS Player of the Week: Landon Donovan

Those all-too-familiar remarks of Landon Donovan being over the hillwill likely not be seen as muchthis week.

The claims of Donovan's demise looked largely exaggerated this past weekend, as MLS's all-time leading scorer led the LA Galaxy to a thoroughly impressive 3-0 road victory over the Seattle Sounders.

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views

It may have been an abbreviated week of MLS action thanks to the international break, but that doesn't mean the games were short on action.

From multi-goal games, to rookie debuts, to an impressive golazo, the six games of week four had quite a bit going for them.

Here is the best of the best from the smaller than usual slate:

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored twice for the New York Red Bulls as they cruised passed Minnesota United by a 3-0 score.
