Joel Lindpere Nominated for Goal of the Week

By Frank Della Femina

Joel Lindpere's first goal of the season has certainly turned a few heads, as it not only led the Red Bulls to a 1-0 road victory in LA but also finds itself in the mix for Goal of the Week honors.

The play developed as defender Connor Lade sent the ball in to Jan Gunnar Solli, who streaked down the wing toward goal looking for an option to open up. That opportunity presented itself as Lindpere kept pace with Solli and charged his way into the box. Solli placed the ball perfectly to a striding Lindpere, who balanced himself to avoid the stumble and slipped a left-footed finish past stunned Galaxy goalkeeper Bill Gaudette.
