Akeem Ward (OAK) - #SDvOAK, 10/24/21: The defender produced a remarkable piece of skill to control in traffic and then flick the ball over his marker’s head in the left side of the penalty area before driving home a left-footed volley that got the No. 7 spot on SportsCenter’s Top 10 on Sunday night.
