Saborio's finish tops Henry, Wondo for Goal of the Week
Real Salt Lake got the best of Colorado again, and to the victors go the spoils.
RSL striker Álvaro Saborío took the top honor for the AT&T Goal of the Week for his tidy finish in a 2-0 win over Rapids last Saturday, easily outpacing some tough competition from two of the best finishers in the league.
Saborío’s goal – a right-footed finish inside the box after he chested down a cross from defender Tony Beltran in the 20th minute – earned 33 percent of the vote, more than enough top Thierry Henry’s pitch-perfect volley against the Columbus Crew and a nifty finish from San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski in a win over Vancouver.
1. Álvaro Saborío (RSL) 33%
2. Thierry Henry (NY) 22%
3. Chris Wondolowski (SJ) 22%
4. Alan Gordon (SJ) 20%
5. Alejandro Moreno (CHV) 3%
