Celebration of the Year: Honorable Mentions

The Celebration of the Year Voting has come to a close, but before the Union announces the winner, take a look at a couple that just barely missed the cut. 

Fabian Herbers vs. DC United

Fabian Herbers scored just one goal this season, but it was a beauty. Off a hard pass from Alejandro Bedoya, Herbers one-timed the pass with a chip into the upper 90 against DC United to clinch a 4-0 victory. Herbers spread his arms and went on a little airplane ride around the pitch before embracing with Ray Gaddis, Bedoya and the rest of his team. 

Alejandro Bedoya vs. Atlanta United FC

Bedoya scored a few goals this season, but his goal against Atlanta United FC was one fans will remember. Roland Alberg sent in a service from a corner, which was redirected by Jack Elliott and found its way to Bedoya. The ball was going over his head, so Bedoya bicycle-kicked the ball into the back of the net to give the Union a 2-0 lead. Noticing the crowd's reaction, Bedoya channeled his inner Maximus and asked the fans, "Are you not entertained?!" before giving an emphatic fist pump.
