Striker Juan Guerra, who scored the lone goal in the Cosmos’ 1-0 win over host North Carolina FC Sunday, was named the winner of the FrontRowSoccer.com goal of the week Monday.
Guerra was honored for the week ending Sunday, June 4.
He became the second Cosmos to earn the honor this season, with Javi Marquez getting the nod for Week 8 April 24.
Guerra tallied in the 52nd minute. Walter Restrepo’s cross found Guerra in the box as he chested down the ball and sent a strike past goalkeeper Sylvestre into the lower left corner..
The Cosmos (4-1-4, 16) points), who trail first-place Miami FC (6-1-3, 21) by five points, are tied with Jacksonville Armada FC (4-2-4, 16), but have a game in hand.
New York also extended its spring season unbeaten streak to seven games. The team also has a nine-game road unbeaten streak extending back to last season.
The Cosmos return home for two games this week at MCU Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn, N.Y. They host FC Edmonton Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. before welcoming North Carolina FC Saturday at 4 p.m.
