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.
