Goal of the Year Voting Day 9: #1 Collins John (9/4 vs. LA) vs. #3 Marco Pappa (6/27 vs. NE)
First round done, Collins John’s dramatic go-ahead goal against LA on Labor Day weekend goes up against Marco Pappa’s blast from 25 in the Fire’s return from the 18-day World Cup break.
The winner will take the Nowak championship advance to the Goal of the Year Final Four, taking on the victor from the Kubik bracket. We could see a potential Pappa vs. Pappa semifinal if the Guatemalan international can upend John today and have his #1 seeded 2010 MLS Goal of the Year (April 10 vs. San Jose) defeat #2 Peter Lowry (10/8 vs. CLB) on Tuesday.
