TAMPA, Fla. – Saint Louis FC midfielder Joey Calistri has earned the USL Fans’ Choice Goal of the Week for Week 13 of the 2018 season as his remarkable individual run and finish against Tulsa Roughnecks FC this past Saturday night at ONEOK Field took top spot in the weekly online poll.
Named the USL Player of the Week this past Tuesday for his two goal, one assist performance in Saint Louis’ 3-0 victory on the road, Calistri’s second goal on the night provided the exclamation point to the win. Running on to gain possession on the left side of the penalty area, Calistri spun past his marker with his first touch and then toed the goal line before sliding a finish through Roughnecks goalkeeper Fabian Cerda’s legs from a tight angle.
Calistri’s goal earned 59 percent of the poll conducted online at USLSoccer.com that concluded on Thursday. Fresno FC’s Jose Cuevas finished second on 22 percent for a crisp, first-time finish on the road against Reno 1868 FC, while Penn FC’s Ken Tribbett finished third with 12 percent for his powerful header in his side’s 3-2 victory against Toronto FC II.
