AT&T Goal of the Week update: Kalif Alhassan in front, but Jalil Anibaba lurks in second
Four of the last five AT&T Goal of the Week winners have come from one of the three Cascadia teams, and it looks likely to be five out of six if the Chicago Fire don't stage a late rally.
The Portland Timbers' Kalif Alhassan, the winner back in Week 28, is in the lead once again (40.85 percent) for his game-winning strike against the Seattle Sounders on Sunday night. Standing in the way of a league-best 11th Goal of the Week for the Timbers is the curling effort from Chicago's Jalil Anibaba (24.1 percent), which remains in the hunt on the final day of balloting.
Two of the league's rising stars, D.C. United midfielder Nick DeLeon (13.5 percent) and Vancouver Whitecaps forward Kekuta Manneh (12.51 percent) currently stand third and fourth, respectively, while Philadelphia Union forward Jack McInerney (9.05 percent) rounds out the field after his dramatic game-tying goal to help the Union's playoff hopes.
