TAMPA, Fla. – New Mexico United midfielder Santi Moar has earned the USL Championship Fans’ Choice Goal of the Week for Week 2 of the 2019 season as his perfectly-placed curling finish against Phoenix Rising FC last Saturday night at Casino Arizona Field took top spot in the weekly online poll.
One of the major offseason signings for the expansion club, Moar’s first goal for New Mexico showed off his standout finishing ability. Finding space on the left side after a layoff by Ryan Williams, Moar shaped inside onto his right foot and sent a curled finish to the top-right corner of the net that left Rising FC goalkeeper Carl Woszczynski with little chance.
Moar’s goal earned 56 percent of the poll conducted online at USLChampionship.com that concluded on Thursday lunchtime. Fresno FC’s Arun Basuljevic finished second with 26 percent for his sharp low finish against Rio Grande Valley FC last Saturday night, while Phoenix Rising FC’s Jason Johnson finished third for his powerful headed finish that earned his side a 3-3 draw with New Mexico United on Saturday night.
