The best goal this weekend in the United States came from USL League Two – shout-out to the Des Moines Menace’s Fernando Garcia – but players and teams in the USL Championship also delivered some outstanding finishes over the past weekend of action as well. We’ve picked out five nominees, now you get to decide who gets the honor of being the Championship Fans’ Choice Goal of the Week.
Voting runs through Thursday, May 19 at 12 p.m. ET.
Illia Tyrkus (NY) - #HFDvNY, 5/14/22: The 16-year-old Academy product delivered a spectacular finish for his first in the professional ranks, controlling at the top-right edge of the penalty area and firing home to the far corner at Trinity Health Stadium for the visitors.
Neco Brett (NM) - #CHSvNM, 5/14/22: The Jamaican forward got New Mexico out to a flying start in Charleston after a good move released Daniel Bruce on the right for a low cross and clinical two-touch finish.
Pato Botello Faz (DET) - #DETvLDN, 5/14/22: The Mexican forward received a perfectly flighted cross from the left by Antoine Hoppenot before controlling and shooting home sharply from 13 yards as DCFC took another home win.
Jake LaCava (TBR) - #PHXvTBR, 5/15/22: LaCava was the recipient of a candidate for Assist of the Year by Leo Fernandes in a neat piece of interplay as Fernandes’ heel-flick pass split two defenders and set up LaCava for a close-range finish.
Robert Coronado (RGV) - #MBvRGV, 5/14/22: Coronado found teammate Juan Pablo Torres near the top of the penalty area, and Torres returned the favor with a fine slipped pass that Coronado lifted over the goalkeeper for a slick team finish.
