The Fives Stripes' attacker gets the award after pulling 40.4% of the votes on Twitter in a competition that pitted him against Real Salt Lake's Damir Kreilach, the New England Revolution's Tajon Buchanan and NYCFC's Santiago Rodriguez.

It continues a strong run of form for Barco, giving him an MLS career-high five goals and four assists in 15 games (13 starts) this year.
Buchanan came in second place, garnering 31.9% of the vote for his clinical first-time finish in New England's 2-1 victory over NYCFC. Kreilach came in third at 18.4% for his stunner in RSL's 3-2 defeat at LAFC, while Rodriguez came in at 9.2% for his finish off a gorgeous assist from teammate Taty Castellanos.
