Nate Jaqua among goal-of-week nominees

Nate Jaqua's game-tying volley into the back of the net Saturday is among the seven nominees for this week's MLS Goal of the Week honors. Here's the full list.

"It felt great," Jaqua said Saturday after the match. "I was hoping I could get another one. It didn't turn out that way. But yeah, it felt good."

Jaqua has contributed either a goal or an assist in Seattle's last four games, including scoring second-half equalizer in the last two. He now has three goals and four assists and leads the team with 10 points.

And even more could be directly ahead. According to the Sounders:

If history is any indication, Jaqua could be poised for bigger things in the next month. June has been Jaqua's most productive month during his career, with 11 goals in 23 MLS games. He has scored four goals and one assist in nine games v Chivas USA. His first career hat trick came 6/4/05 in Chicago's 5-2 win over the expansion side. Jaqua also scored in a 4-0 home win by Houston last season.
