Week 7 featured several keenly balanced matches, and the race for AT&T MLS Goal of the Week honors is unfolding in much the same fashion.
As of Thursday morning, Ned Grabavoy's well-placed winner for Real Salt Lake currently holds a narrow lead with 27.43 percent of the vote. But Seattle's Obafemi Martins lurks right in the RSL veteran's slipstream with 25.64 percent, and Vancouver starlet Kekuta Manneh is close behind with 22.3 percent thus far.
Even in fourth place, Hector Jimenez is still right in the mix with 18.89 percent, underlining the close-run nature of one of the tightest GotW contests in weeks. With 5.74 percent, Stefan Ishizaki's header is the only one left in the dust this time around.
There's still time for you to influence the outcome of this race. Cast your ballot for your favorite goal before voting ends! The winner is determined by the total number of votes cast online and will be announced on Friday.
Voting runs until 11:59 pm PT on Thursdays. For complete coverage of the AT&T MLS Goal of the Week — including an archive of all of this season's nominees and winners — click here.
