Dom Dwyer's stoppage-time stunner wins MLS Goal of the Week

Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer was announced on Friday as the Week 4 winner in MLSsoccer.com's Goal of the Week voting.

Dwyer has five goals and two assists in 27 MLS appearances (including postseason) to go along with one goal in CONCACAF Champions League competition. In 2013, Dwyer set the USL PRO regular season goal scoring record with 15 goals in 13 games while on loan with Orlando City SC and was named the USL PRO Championship MVP with four goals in the final.
