Ian Harkes made sure his first professional goal was a beautiful one, and now the strike has been further commemorated with AT&T MLS Goal of the Week honors.


The D.C. United rookie opened the scoring in his team's 4-2 loss to FC Dallas on July 4 with a cracking first-time finish from the top of the penalty box, a play that earned 43 percent of the Week 19 GOTW vote. 


Clint Dempsey's half-volley against Colorado finished in second place with 27 percent, while contenders from Diego Rubio, Sebastian Giovinco and Bradley Wright-Phillips finished further back in the race.
