Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski was voted MLS Player of the Month for the month of September, his third such honor this season, having also picked up the award in April and June.
Wondolowski became the first player in MLS history to earn three Player of the Month awards in a single season.
Wondolowski, 29, scored four goals and registered two assists in the month, and leads the race for the 2012 Golden Boot with 22 goals. Alvaro Saborio of Real Salt Lake is second with 17 goals.
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.
