Charlotte's striker topped the Matchday 9 pack, earning 35.4% of the vote for the game-winner in a 1-0 victory over the Columbus Crew. In a connection between Polish internationals and Designated Players, Swiderki one-timed home a low, driven cross from winger Kamil Józwiak.
Second place belonged to FC Cincinnati forward Sergio Santos (33.3%), who got to the end of an Álvaro Barreal cross with a diving header to open the score in Cincy's 2-1 victory over the Portland Timbers.
Toronto FC’s Lorenzo Insigne (16%) placed third, leaving Real Salt Lake’s Jefferson Savarino (15.2%) in fourth place. Both wingers brilliantly placed far-post curlers, with Insigne’s consolation goal arriving in a 4-2 loss at the Philadelphia Union and Savarino’s banger proving key in a 3-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes.
