VIDEO: Osvaldo Alonso Scores 30-Yard Volley Vs. Cal FC

David vs. Goliath didn't quite turn out how many people had hoped. After a scoreless first half, the Seattle Sounders pounced on Cal FC with five second-half goals. The game turned out not to be all that memorable, but Osvaldo Alonso did provide us with one absolutely spectacular moment.

With the Sounders already up 3-0 in the 70th minute, Osvaldo took a pass from Fredy Montero, flicked it up to himself and fired a volley from 25-30 yards out. The ball dipped perfectly under the crossbar to beat goalkeeper Derby Carillo.

It was hardly the most important goal Alonso has scored in recent memory. Heck, it wasn't even his most important of the game -- that was his 50th minute penalty that gave the Sounders a 1-0 lead.

When asked if it was the best goal he ever scored, though, Alonso simply said, "Yep." It might just be the most spectacular goal a MLS player scores this season.
