Cannon's stop on Agudelo wins Save of the Week

On Saturday against the New York Red Bulls, the Vancouver Whitecaps once again failed to get a road win. Were it not for Joe Cannon, though, the 'Caps might not have even left Red Bull Arena with a point.

The Vancouver goalkeeper won the Save of the Week for Week 26 for a diving stop in the 80th minute on Juan Agudelo's header. The save kept the score level at 1-1, the eventual final scoreline.

Cannon's save took almost 47 percent of the vote, well ahead of second-place finisher Matt Pickens whose diving reaction save on LA Galaxy defender Todd Dunivant's header kept the match scoreless. LA would go on to win 1-0 behind a 36th-minute goal from Landon Donovan.
