Sporting Kansas City's C.J. Sapong used a brilliant ball from Kei Kamara and a technical finish to give SKC an early advantage on their way to a 2-1 win over San Jose on Saturday. The 2011 MLS Rookie of the Year now finds himself in the lead for AT&T Goal of the Week for Week 12.

Sapong is ahead by a comfortable margin, while the other four nominees are all battling for second place. Patrice Bernier's finish for Montreal heads the second tier, all of whom are within five percentage points of one another.
