MLS: New England Revolution at Chicago Fire Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Fire defender Patrick Doody earned MLS Team of the Week honors for his performance in the Fire’s 4-1 domination of the New England Revolution on Saturday.

Doody, who was making just his second appearance of the season, was clinical in the final third against New England, providing the assist for Chicago’s final three goals.

The outside back really turned it on in the second half of the first 45 minutes, and set up Juninho for this rocket in the 39th minute.

And in the 49th minute, the former Indiana Hoosier was at it again. This time throwing an absolute dime to Micahel De Leeuw.

Finally, to cap things off, Doody picked out Louis Solignac with a slotted ball in extra time.

You can check out full highlights below.

Doody’s performance on Saturday, was, well, surprising. Yet it seems like the Fire finally have some much-needed depth at outside back. With Brandon Vincent due back from injury in the next couple of weeks, and Matt Polster impressing on the other end of the back line, Chicago is flush with young defensive talent. Let’s just hope they can keep it up going into the final stretch of the season.
