Whitecaps' Camilo gets MLS goal of year

AP - Sports

NEW YORK (AP) -- Vancouver Whitecaps forward Camilo Sanvezzo has been honored with the 2013 Goal of the Year in Major League Soccer for his flying scissor-kick volley against the Portland Timbers.

The spectacular goal came at B.C. Place on Oct. 6. Camilo launched himself in the air, got a foot on Young-Pyo Lee's cross and hammered the ball home in the 78th minute. Camilo beat Donovan Ricketts, recently named MLS goalie of the year.

It was judged the best of the season's 845 goals in an online and text fan vote. Camilo, a Brazilian, led the league in scoring with 25 goals.

Also Thursday, Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando won his second consecutive Save of the Year for his stop on Colorado Rapids midfielder Jaime Castrillon.
