Portland Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts claims his third Save of the Week award

If the Save of the Week award is any indication of the best goalkeepers in MLS, Portland's Donovan Ricketts is having a pretty fine season.

The Jamaican international captured his third honor of the campaign in Week 8 -- the others came in Week 2 and Week 5 -- two more than any other MLS netminder this year.

This time Ricketts won his award at the expense of reigning MLS Golden Boot champ Chris Wondolowski, whose point-blank blast was tipped out of play during the first half of the 1-1 draw between San Jose and Portland last Sunday.
