FC Dallas forward Blas Perez and defender George John were ranked among the Castrol Index Weekly Top 20 performers for Week 8 in Major League Soccer following the team's 2-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
Perez checked in at number four in this week's Castrol Index after scoring his third goal of the season in Week 8 and registering four shots on goal vs. Whitecaps FC. Super Raton's goal came in the 50th minute of the match after he got a head to Kenny Cooper's deflected shot and redirected the ball past goalkeeper Joe Cannon.
John landed at number 11 in this week's Index. The big center back played the full 90 minutes against Vancouver and was occupying defender Brad Rusin on FCD's corner kick attempt in the 29th minute, during which Rusin scored an own goal following David Ferreira's service. John also made a goal-line clearance in the 41st minute to help maintain the clean sheet.
