TAMPA, Fla. – Forward Madison FC forward Don Smart has earned the USL League One Fan’s Choice Goal of the Week for Week 13 of the league’s inaugural season as the veteran’s brilliant strike against North Texas SC last Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at Breese Stevens Field took top spot in the weekly online poll.
Smart has led the Flamingos offensively this season with four goals, and his brace against North Texas helped the side to a 4-1 victory against the current League One leaders. Smart just controlled a through-ball in the right channel that ran into the penalty area and ran on to lash home a finish to the top-right corner of the net that put Madison ahead for good and the crowd into wild celebrations.
Smart’s goal earned 50 percent of the poll conducted online at USLLeagueOne.com that concluded on Thursday lunchtime. Lansing Ignite FC’s Kevin Coiffic finished second on 37 percent for his well-taken volley against Orlando City B last Saturday night, while Chattanooga Red Wolves SC’s Steven Beattie finished third for his late game-winner against Greenville Triumph SC.
