Goal of the Matchday

Austin FC's Jon Gallagher wins Goal of the Matchday

Rumor has it the crossbar at America First Field is still ringing.

That’s the byproduct of the latest AT&T 5G Goal of the Matchday, which belongs to Austin FC fullback Jon Gallagher (39.7% of the vote). His left-footed blast got going the Verde & Black’s 2-1 win at Real Salt Lake, an important bounceback result on Matchday 3.

Second place went to Nashville SC’s Taylor Washington (31.2% of the vote) after his karate-kick volley sealed a 2-0 win over visiting CF Montréal.

Those two nominees left small spoils for D.C. United midfielder Chris Durkin (third place; 15.9% of the vote) and San Jose Earthquakes winger Cristian Espinoza (fourth place; 13.2% of the vote). Durkin’s chop-and-finish salvaged a 1-1 draw with Orlando City SC, while Espinoza’s powerful strike earned a 1-0 win over Colorado Rapids.
