Cannon Earns MLS Player of the Week Honors

July 7, 2005

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Joe Cannon was named Major League Soccer's Player of the Week on Wednesday, the third time in his career he captured the honor.

Cannon, the reigning MLS Goalkeeper of the Year and a former Santa Clara University star, helped the Rapids earn a 2-1 win over the Kansas City Wizards on July 4. He made several big saves down the stretch with his team was playing with just 10 men. The talented keeper made a spectacular save Monday in the final moments when he just got his foot on a deflected shot in the 89th minute.

Colorado improved to 3-0-1 in 2005 when finishing a game with less than 11 players, thanks mostly to Cannon. The Rapids have surrendered a total of just two goals in those four games.

Cannon also played well last week in a 1-0 loss Wednesday to the San Jose Earthquakes. The only goal of the game came in the final moments by Dwayne De Rosario.

The Player of the Week honor is the third of Cannon's career. He won the award twice during his time with the Earthquakes. He captured the honor twice during the 2000 season with San Jose.
