Diego Valeri's goal from distance named MLS Goal of the Week

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Diego Valeri's second-half wonder-strike against the Colorado Rapids has been named the MLS Goal of the Week.

Valeri's goal from distance was his fourth of the season and gave Portland a much-needed 2-1 victory at Providence Park last weekend.

The home win left the Timbers wit 24 points from 20 matches. They're still on the outside looking in for a playoff spot.

Valeri easily won the Goal of the Week contest, getting 54 percent of the vote. Benny Feihalber's goal for Sporting KC came in second with 22 percent of the vote.
