Now, he’s being honored for his efforts.
Deric won MLS Save of the Week for Week 13 for the excellent stop, which saw him leap to his left to prevent Acosta’s 20-yard free kick from curling into the top-right corner in the 27th minute of Sunday’s draw at Toyota Stadium.
The save collected a dominating 58 percent of the vote, easily beating second-place finisher Philadelphia’s Andre Blake (16 percent) to take the Save of the Week crown. Dallas’ Jesse Gonzalez finished third with 14 percent of the vote, while New York Red Bulls ‘keeper Luis Robles placed fourth with 11 percent of the tally.
