    Nicely placed header but under no pressure, like pretty much all the candidates this week. I would’ve chosen Driver’s goal for Houston.

      In a field of so-so candidates, Wallace’s was the most important so it wins. And that header was tougher than you’re giving it credit for being.

    • Gnarls says:

      It was a nice header, but I agree with Shane. Driver’s was the most aesthetically pleasing anyway.

    • Chance says:

      No pressure cause he got away from his man. And it was a PERFECTLY PLACED header. No keeper in the world stops it.

    Dope header. Gspurning can do nothing but watch in awe….
