Toronto FC II player nets on a wonderful solo effort for first pro goal

There was a glut of top-class goals to be found across USL this weekend, but we have one here from Toronto FC II's Malik Johnson that might take the cake.

With the score knotted at zero in the second half of a rivalry showdown at FC Montreal, Johnson, who had come off the bench just minutes earlier, showed off his speed and technical ability with this solo effort:

The kicker? It was his first professional goal. Johnson, 17, played a handful of games for TFCII last year as a call-up from the club's Senior Academy team and signed a pro deal with the USL team ahead of the 2016 season.

TFCII would go on to win the game, 2-1, thanks to another fine effort, this time from Raheem Edwards.

Among the other highlights from USL this weekend were Sean Okoli's scissor-kick for FC Cincinnati and on-loan FC Dallas forward Coy Craft's curling effort vs. St. Louis FC, which was also his first in the professional ranks.
