GOTY Day 1: #1 Rolfe vs. #4 Pardo

VOTE: #1 Rolfe's poke at San Jose or #4 Pardo's free kick vs. Vancouver

We open up the 2012 Chicago Fire Goal of the Year bracket with a classic #1 vs. #4 matchup in the Nowak bracket.


The club's 2012 MVP and Golden Boot winner Chris Rolfe's stunning outside of the foot poke from distance on July 28 at San Jose takes on veteran midfielder Pavel Pardo's impressive free kick from July 14 vs. Vancouver. 

Rolfe's entry is one of three (tied with Alex for most in the tournament) while Pardo's lone goal of the 2012 campaign is also his lone entry in the competition.
