Seattle Sounders forward Fredy Montero was the runaway
winner of the AT&T Goal of the Week award for Week 5. 

The Colombian’s stunning free kick from 40 yards against FC
Dallas last Thursday night earned him 43 percent of the fan vote. Colorado
Rapids veteran midfielder Pablo Mastroeni came in second with 25 percent of the
ballots. Peter Lowry, Sacha Kljestan and Marko Perovic finished well behind the
pace. 

Montero’s blast in the 55th minute was Seattle’s second of
the night at Pizza Hut Park and nearly held up as the game-winner had it not
been for a last-minute penalty converted by FC Dallas to equalize. The former
Deportivo Cali man sent a hard curling drive that went over the defensive wall
and past FCD goalkeeper Dario Sala into the top left corner of the goal. It was
his second goal of the season.
