LA's Magee voted MLS player of month

MageeLA's Mike Magee has been voted MLS player of the month. He got my first-place vote, with my second going to Davy Arnaud of Montreal.

Here's the release from the league:

LA Galaxy midfielder Mike Magee was voted Major League Soccer Player of the Month by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for the month of March.

Magee started the 2013 season with a bang, scoring a hat trick in the Galaxy’s home opener against the Chicago Fire on March 3rd, earning him Player of the Week honors. The Galaxy midfielder continued to be a scoring threat as he converted a penalty in the Galaxy’s 1-0 win over the Colorado Rapids on March 24th and then tallied the opening goal against Toronto FC in a 2-2 tie on March 30th. Magee’s standout performance this month landed him atop the 2013 Budweiser Golden Boot standings with five goals in four matches.

The Galaxy kick off April with a CONCACAF Champions League semifinal match against Monterrey tonight at 7 p.m. PT on FOX Soccer. The MLS Player of the Month is selected each month of the regular season by a panel of journalists from NASR. The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
