Mullins and Arriola named to MLS Team of the Week | Week 29

Patrick Mullins and Paul Arriola have been named to Week 29's MLS Team of the Week following their standout performances against the San Jose Earthquakes. United dominated the Quakes 4-0 at home on Saturday thanks in large part to Mullins and Arriola's play. 

Mullins had a historic second half, scoring four goals in 31 minutes to complete the fastest four-goal performance in Major League Soccer history. The forward tapped in a cross from Arriola, headed in a second cross from Arriola, slotted home a free kick rebound, and scored on a free kick of his own to tally his first, second, third, and fourth goals of the season. Mullins is the only MLS player to ever score four second-half goals. 

Arriola was also a force on the attack all night, bringing much-needed energy and vision to the wings. The midfielder picked up his first and second career MLS assists against the Quakes after sending two beautifully-placed balls to Mullins, and led the Black-and-Red attack with four chances created. Arriola also led the home squad in fouls won (two) and had the second-highest passing accuracy of United players logging 90 minutes (91.1%). This is Arriola's first career MLS Team of the Week.
