This one wasn’t even close.
Martinez unleashed a venomous bicycle kick off Brooks Lennon’s cross, briefly equalizing in a 2-1 loss at the New England Revolution. The sucker-punch, though, is that result eliminated Atlanta from Audi 2022 MLS Cup Playoffs contention.
LAFC’s two goals that brought them their second Supporters’ Shield title in four years finished second (Denis Bouanga, 10.6%) and third (Carlos Vela, 7.2%). Bouanga’s mazy run and Vela’s curler were the difference in a 2-1 win at the Portland Timbers.
Fourth place (3.3%) went to Chicago Fire FC striker Jhon Duran after the 18-year-old Colombian international netted his third brace of the year. His floated-home shot served as the game-winner in a 3-2 win at FC Cincinnati.
