Week 28 in MLS had some interesting matches and as it has been the case all season long, there were a few goals that managed to stand tall above the rest. Some forwards extended their recent streaks, some midfielders made a big offensive impact, and there was also a legend who scored after almost two years without playing.
5. Sporting Kansas City vs Los Angeles Galaxy: Landon Donovan (LA, 76')
This goal might not be the best one during the past weekend, but it's certainly a special one. Landon Donovan netted his first goal after his 21-month retirement and it was an important goal, as it allowed the Galaxy to equalize against Sporting Kansas City. The MLS all-time leading scorer only needed two games to score, and it seems he'll be on a good level for the playoffs.
4. Orlando City SC vs Columbus Crew SC: Cyle Larin (ORL, 79')
Orlando City SC is coming off a huge loss against Columbus Crew SC, but at least they had Cyle Larin on a good level. The Canadian striker made his presence felt with an impressive goal, leaving a defender behind with a quick turn before unleashing a fierce shot that was completely out of the keeper's reach.
3. Montreal Impact vs New England Revolution: Kelyn Rowe (NE, 27')
Kelyn Rowe was one of the best players in MLS this past week, and he made a big impact for the New England Revolution in their impressive win over Montreal. Rowe contributed with two goals, but the best one was his strike that came from long range. His accurate shot hit the post before finding the back of the net.
2. Real Salt Lake vs Houston Dynamo: Alex (HOU, 36')
Alex is a very talented player, and he showed that during Houston Dynamo's 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake this past weekend. The 27-year-old Brazilian took advantage of a huge mistake from RSL on the defensive end, and he scored with a brilliant finish using the outside of his foot.
1. Toronto FC vs New York Red Bulls: Jozy Altidore (NY, 68')
The best goal of the week belongs to Jozy Altidore, and it's not even close. The Toronto FC and USMNT striker scored an impressive goal against the New York Red Bulls, unleashing a beautiful free kick over the wall that went straight into an impossible angle for Luis Robles. Altidore is on a hot streak since returning from injury, and he will be key for Toronto FC in the postseason.
