Weaving run and finish that earned Kickers first victory of 2019 claimed top spot in weekly poll

TAMPA, Fla. – Richmond Kickers forward Joe Gallardo has earned the USL League One Fan’s Choice Goal of the Week for Week 4 of the league’s inaugural season as his weaving individual effort that lifted the Kickers to victory on the road against Greenville Triumph SC took top spot in the weekly online poll.

A former United States U-19 international, Gallardo produced an outstanding weaving run and finish to lift the Kickers to their first win of the 2019 season against a Greenville side that had previously won back-to-back games on its home turf. The 21-year-old California native was also named to the League One Team of the Week on Tuesday.

Gallardo’s goal earned 47 percent of the poll conducted online at that concluded on Thursday lunchtime, narrowly edging out Forward Madison FC’s Josiel Núñez on 44 percent after Núñez produced a fine finish for the first goal in the club’s history last Friday night against Orlando City B. South Georgia Tormenta FC’s Christopher Hellmann took third place for his sharp shot that capped a good move late on against Chattanooga Red Wolves SC.
