Revs' Shuttleworth takes honor for Save of the Week
New England’s hopes of winning were long gone, but Bobby Shuttleworth’s day certainly wasn’t done.
The young Revolution goalkeeper came up with back-to-back saves on Chivas USA’s Alejandro Moreno and Jorge Flores in the 71st minute of his team’s 3-0 loss last Saturday, and his efforts were good enough to win the MLS Save of the Week for Week 7.
Shuttleworth came up huge first on a nifty point-blank backheel from Moreno, and then lunged to his right to snuff out the rebound shot from Flores. The two stops garnered nearly 40 percent of the vote, easily topping a lunging tip save from Sporting Kansas City goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen on New York midfielder Dwayne De Rosario in a 1-0 loss to the Red Bulls.
