LA's Sarvas third field player to take Save of the Week

Goalkeepers can't have all the fun, at least when it comes to Save of the Week voting.

For the third time this season, a field player won the honor, as the LA Galaxy's Marcelo Sarvas' sliding save on Conor Casey inspired voters enough to make his valiant effort the best of Week 28.

After a whiffed clearance by Omar Gonzalez and some nifty footwork by Casey opened up space for a shot on an open goal, Sarvas steamed into the six-yard box and threw himself in the path of the Rapids' forward's goal-bound effort. San Jose's Jason Hernandez and Portland's Steven Smith are the other two non-goalkeepers to win the award this season.
