Chivas USA sniper Erick "Cubo" Torres takes AT&T Goal of the Week with dramatic winner

One week after coming up short in the AT&T MLS Goal of the Week voting, Chivas USA striker Erick "Cubo" Torres decided to up the acrobatics. And the drama.

Torres reacted to a deflected shot with an improvised, laid-out side volley just inside the right post against the Montreal Impact on Saturday, earning a third consecutive 1-0 win for his team and his first career AT&T MLS Goal of the Week award.

Torres won a dominant 44 percent of the vote, ahead of quality strikes from Vancouver's Sebastián Fernández, Portland's Diego Valeri, Dallas' Tesho Akindele and D.C. United's Nick DeLeon.

Final Votes (Week 17):

  1. Erick Torres (CHV): 44.11%
  2. Sebastián Fernández (VAN): 22.62%
  3. Diego Valeri (POR): 13.53%
  4. Tesho Akindele (FCD): 11.70%
  5. Nick DeLeon (DC): 8.04%
