Jared Jeffrey put D.C. United up 1-0 over Toronto FC last weekend with a perfectly-placed, long-range curler. The MLS rookie calmly cut the ball onto his left foot, looked up, and put the ball away. Even though United couldn't hold onto the lead, Jeffrey won MLS Goal of the Week for his strike. Congratulations Jared!
