Nick DeLeon up for MLS Week 17 Goal of the Week

Nicky is up against some strong competition (especially Cubo Torres' strike), so get your votes in!

Time to mobilize, D.C. United fans. Nick DeLeon is up for Goal of the Week for his strip-and-score tally against Toronto FC over the weekend. As you'll probably recall, Nicky dispossessed Toronto FC centerback Nick Hagglund and then held the ball on the run despite pressure from the TFC rookie. After storming into the box, NDL turned on the fancy footwork, juking two defenders to the ground before finishing cooly to the near post. It was a lovely goal, and a subtle goal. The latter aspect doesn't bode well for its GOTW prospects.

Especially when there's a score as spectacular as the one from Erick Torres (Cubo if you're nasty). It's hard to beat lofting the ball to yourself and then bicycle/scissor kicking past the 'keeper. But go vote for Nicky anyway.
