Save of the Week!

By Olivia Cervantes

The nominees for MLS Save of the Week are up, and surprisingly, Dan Kennedy is not the Goat among the nominees, but rather, defender John Valencia!

Valencia’s save in the 56th minute of the match proved that saves are not just for goalkeepers. If you missed last Saturday’s game and didn’t watch the highlights, Valencia made a sliding save to keep RSL’s Javier Morales’ shot from passing the goal line and taking the ball out for a corner kick. After the save, Valencia received praise not only from the fans but Dan Kennedy himself.
