For a third straight week, an Atlanta United player has won AT&T MLS Goal of Week honors. And with Hector "Tito" Villalba's sizzler in Week 29, who could really argue?
Villalba's rip from the penalty arc opened the scoring in Atlanta's 2-0 win over the Montreal Impact on Sunday afternoon on national network television, and ultimately won 67 percent of the votes.
Villalba joins Miguel Almiron as Atlanta players who have won the award twice in the club's inaugural season. Overall, coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino's stylish side has claimed the honor six times this campaign.
Marco Donadel's long-range blast in Montreal's 5-3 win at Toronto FC four days before that took second place with 28 percent of the vote. That was followed by Miguel Ibarra's sweet volley for Minnesota United (3 percent) in a 4-1 romp over FC Dallas and a stunning free kick by Romain Alessandrini (2 percent) in the LA Galaxy's 2-1 loss to Sporting Kansas City.
