Mike Magee scored a goal while trying to get out of the way on Saturday in the Chicago Fire's 3-2 victory over FC Dallas. The goal counts the same as any other on the scoresheet and has Magee leading the Striker Index as the 2013 MLS regular season winds down.


Here's the updated MLS Striker Index (minimum goals: 10).

2013 MLS Striker Index

Camilo Sanvezzo VAN 4 0.72
Alvaro Saborio RSL 6.8 0.85
Jack McInerney PHI 6.8 0.47
Dominic Oduro CLB 6.8 0.40
Robbie Keane LAG 6.9 0.76
Diego Fagundez NE 7.4 0.48

Federico Higuain CLB 9.9 0.38
Landon Donovan LAG 10 0.53

Three teams have two players in the Top 15: the Columbus Crew (Dominic Oduro, Federico Higuain), LA Galaxy (Landon Donovan, Robbie Keane) and  Philadelphia Union (Jack McInerney, Conor Casey).

Clutch King: Chris Wondolowski finds himself at 10th in the Striker Index despite a down season goal scoring wise. Wondo leads MLS in game-winning goals with seven this season and has lead or tied for the GWG lead since 2010 by racking up a league best 32 game-winners over that time frame.

Golden Boot Race: Magee and Di Vaio are tied for the Golden Boot lead at 19 apiece. Di Vaio has gotten to 19 goals in fewer minutes and on fewer shots but Magee has a two-goal edge in road goals with seven (second to only Oduro and Jack Mac with eight road goals).

Road Warriors: Jack McInerney and Dominic Oduro are tied with an MLS-leading 8 road goals. Jack Mac has the edge in percentage of road goals at 72.7 percent to Oduro's 66.7 percent.

No Place Like Home: Robbie Keane leads all players in the Striker Index in home scoring percentage by scoring a whopping 86.7 percent of his goals (13-of-15) at the StubHub Center.
