There were plenty of great golazos to choose from for the latest AT&T Goal of the Week, but in the end, it's Atlanta United's Pity Martinez who came out on top for his wonder-strike in the Five Stripes' 2-0 win over Nashville SC.

Atlanta fans have become known for coming out in numbers to back their own for these votes, but Pity's strike was certainly a worthy winner. The Argentine slammed the door on Nashville in the 87th minute of Saturday's contest with a vicious first-time strike off a feed from Mo Adams. In the end, he took home 44.79% of the vote.

Columbus Crew SC fans might have a bone to pick with that result, though. Midfielder Darlington Nagbe put up a golazo of his own in his team's 3-0 rout of Chicago Fire FC, setting himself up with an amazing finish from distance reminiscent of the 2011 MLS Goal of the Year he scored with the Portland Timbers. Don't be surprised if Nagbe ended up with an AT&T Goal of the Year candidate for a strike that didn't end up getting the AT&T Goal of the Week award. He took home 29.97% of the vote.

Seattle's Raul Ruidiaz came in third for the week, taking home 16.47% of the vote for his audacious chip as the Sounders turned a tight contest with the Timbers into a 3-0 rout with a flurry of late goals.

The Peruvian was followed by Real Salt Lake's Damir Kreilach, who lashed home the first of his team's four goals against the Colorado Rapids with a wonder-strike from distance and received 5.82% of the vote, with Toronto's Pablo Piatti getting 2.95% for his golazo against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
