One week in and we've already got ourselves a Goal of the Week contender, this time via Boniek García's 23rd minute strike. This one's as much about the goal as it is the wonderful build-up from Will Bruin and Boniek's perfectly-timed run from the midfield.

In one of the tightest races that you'll ever see, Giles Barnes was voted the winner of the Week 25 AT&T Goal of the Week award.

Barnes' long-range blast in the Houston Dynamo's 3-1 victory over the Seattle Sounders edged out New England Revolution forward Juan Agudelo's goal by the slightest of margins, claiming 31.93 percent of the vote while Agudelo earned 31.48 percent for his cheeky back-heel chip over Sean Johnson in the Revolution's 2-0 win against the Chicago Fire.

Barnes captured the award for his second goal in home win against Clint Dempsey and the visiting Sounders. The English midfielder collected a pass from midfielder Brad Davis in the 21st minute of the match and hit a shot with laser-like precision for a stunning strike from about 35 yards out, one that is sure to receive some recognition for Goal of the Year.

Final Votes - Week 25 (online poll and text vote):

1. Giles Barnes (HOU): 31.93%
2. Juan Agudelo (NE): 31.48%
3. Federico Higuain (CLB): 19.76%

Cam Weaver's gorgeous goal may not have been the decisive one in the Houston Dynamo's 3-1 victory over the Columbus Crew last weekend, but it was the AT&T Goal of the Week winner in Week 23.
