Vancouver Whitecaps' Erik Hurtado wins Week 12's AT&T Goal of the Week for fine solo effort

If the Seattle Sounders entered last weekend not knowing how good Erik Hurtado can be on the ball, they surely do now.

Hurtado scored a wonderful goal that saw him beat multiple defenders on the dribble before unleashing a well-placed shot in the Vancouver Whitecaps' 2-2 draw vs. the Sounders last Saturday. The impressive solo effort from the speedy youngster was so good that it won Week 12's AT&T Goal of the Week honors, claiming more than 42 percent of the vote.

That total was well ahead of runner-up Landon Donovan, who earned 24.48 percent of the vote for his record-setting goal in the LA Galaxy's 4-1 rout of the Philadelphia Union.

Final Votes (Week 12):

1. Erik Hurtado (VAN): 42.36%
2. Landon Donovan (LA): 24.48%
3. Gershon Koffie (VAN): 11.98%
4. Robbie Keane (LA): 11.42%
5. Shane O'Neill (COL): 9.76%
