Rusnak edges out Martinez for Week 25 Goal of the Week honors

Josef Martinez may have put himself in position to break one of MLS' longstanding records last Sunday, but the Atlanta United star fell just short of taking AT&T Goal of the Week honors for Week 25.

Albert Rusnak just edged out Martinez with 49% of the vote for his thunderbolt of a stoppage-time equalizer in Real Salt Lake's improbable 2-1 comeback win at the Houston Dynamo. Martinez finished second with 47% choosing his silky strike and record-tying 27th goal of the season.

In order distantly behind them were Ilsinho's late goal for the Philadelphia Union (3%), Lee Nguyen's early-second-half tally for LAFC (1%), and Ashley Cole's opener for the LA Galaxy (0%).

Check out the final Week 25 voting results and video of all five goals.
