Semifinal 1 - #1 Jair Benitez (88% votes) def. #5 Je-Vaughn Watson (12% votes)
To the surprise of no one, Jair's midfield bomb has advanced to the final round of the FCD Goal of the Year competition and now we have semifinal two, without a doubt the toughest decision yet. On one side is Michel's olimpico in Seattle, one of the most unique goals in FC Dallas history. On the other side, it's Mauro's unbelievably technical full-spring volley to beat the Vancouver Whitecaps.
It's our #2 seed vs #3 seed in the second semifinal.
Since it's such a tough choice, we're going to leave voting open through the weekend on this one so watch both goals, let us know which one you voted for and check back next week for the final round of the 2013 Goal of the Year competition!
