Atlanta United escaped Orlando City Stadium with a narrow 1-0 win on Friday night thanks to an absolute thunderbolt of a strike by Tito Villalba in the 86th minute. It was as dramatic of a goal we’ve seen from the Five Stripes all season and it shall not be forgotten any time soon. Let’s relive the goal over and over from the various outlets that carried the match, shall we?
The majority of us were watching on ESPN as it happened. Adrian Healey was forced to cut off a diatribe by Taylor Twellman to get the call of the goal out. Nevertheless, he did the best he could in the moment:
Here’s the call of the golazo from 92.9 The Game with Adam Schick on play by play and Jason Longshore on color commentary:

Three different calls of one amazing goal. While Atlanta United has only been around for a short time, this goal is possibly the best and most important to date. What a moment for Tito to come up clutch.
