AT&T Goal of the Week update: Timbers trumps so far as Diego Valeri strike powers ahead

Week 30 is looking like another Timbers triumph in the MLS Goal of the Week category.

Heading into the final day of voting, Portland maestro Diego Valeri's strike enjoys a hefty lead with 46.11 percent of ballots cast, well ahead of Cascadia rival Camilo of the Vancouver Whitecaps, who sits in second place with 21.16 percent. 

LA Galaxy midfielder Juninho occupies the third slot with 14.82 percent, followed by Sporting KC striker C.J. Sapong with 10.36 percent. And while Dominic Oduro's goal and subsequent pizza-chomping celebration earned a cameo on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, it has only garnered 7.54 percent of GOTW votes thus far.

There's still time to support your favorite Goal of the Week nominee. The winner is determined by the total number of votes cast online and via text.

Check back on Friday for the winner.

Vote online or text goal code to 22442.

Voting runs until 11:59 pm PT on Thursdays. For complete coverage of the AT&T MLS Goal of the Week — including an archive of all of this season's winners — click here.
