Portland Timbers' Will Johnson wins AT&T Goal of the Week after finishing Fanendo Adi's deft flick
The whole sequence was a thing of beauty, but Will Johnson is the Portland Timbers player to claim the accolade.
Johnson was named the winner of Week 13's AT&T Goal of the Week on Friday for his volleyed finish in Portland's 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps last weekend. The veteran midfielder found the back of the net with a well-taken strike that came following a sequence that included a fantastic ball from Diego Valeri transformed into a gorgeous juggling flick from Fanendo Adi that is sure to earn some consideration for assist of the season, and the tally claimed more than 42 percent of the vote in a week that saw several other spectacular goals scored.
Kamani Hill finished in second place in Week 13's voting for his nifty flying backheel finish in the Colorado Rapids' convincing 3-0 triumph over the Houston Dynamo, and Jean-Baptiste Pierazzi saw his winning screamer in the San Jose Earthquakes' 2-1 victory over FC Dallas wind up in third.
