Sounders' Montero the MLS Newcomer of the Year

RENTON, Wash. -- Major League Soccer has named Seattle Sounders forward Fredy Montero the 2009 MLS Newcomer of the Year.

Montero finished tied for third in goals (12) and game-winning goals (4). He led the MLS in shots (86) and was seventh in attempts on goal (32).

The 22-year-old Colombian was among Seattle's four representatives in this year's MLS All-Star game.

Seattle was certain to win the Newcomer of the Year award. Sounders goalkeeper Kasey Keller and midfielder Freddie Ljungberg were the other two finalists.

Montero came to the Sounders from Deportivo Cali. He twice led the Colombian First Division in scoring, including 2006-07 while on loan to Atletico Huila.
