SPR striker Wilson Harris nets USL Championship Fans' Choice Goal of the Week

Take a bow, Wilson Harris.

The Swope Park Rangers striker sealed USL Championship Fans' Choice Goal of the Week honors on Thursday, taking home 43 percent of the fan vote with a brilliant back-heel flick on Sept. 30 that paced SPR to a 3-1 home win over Birmingham Legion FC at Children's Mercy Park.

Harris' sublime bit of skill beat out four other finalists in the fan vote for Week 31, which saw USL Championship clubs combine for over 60 goals.

The 19-year-old Harris now has a team-best 11 goals this season, his second as a full-time professional. With nine goals in his last 10 appearances, he was also one of five finalists for the USL Championship Fans’ Choice Player of the Month, marking the first time this year that a Rangers player has been up for the honor.

The Rangers will travel east this weekend for their penultimate match of the 2019 USL Championship season, visiting two-time defending league champion Louisville City FC at 6 p.m. CT Saturday at Louisville Slugger Field. The Eastern Conference clash will stream live on ESPN Plus as the Rangers and Louisville lock horns in a rematch of the 2017 USL Cup Final, which saw the Kentucky outfit emerge victorious in a cagey 1-0 affair.
