Week 1 of the 2015 Major League Soccer season was dominated by defenses, with plenty of players making excellent stops to deny more than a few big-time scoring opportunities over the weekend.
We whittled the long list of candidates down to five nominees for the first MLS Save of the Week award of 2015. Now, it’s up to you to pick the best one.
A trio of veterans are joined by a pair of youngsters as the nominees for this week’s award, with regular Save of the Week winner Nick Rimando nominated for his stop on the Portland Timbers’ Rodney Wallace, the New York Red Bulls’ Luis Robles up for his save on SKC’s Seth Sinovic, NYCFC’s Josh Saunders in the running for his denial of OCSC's Kevin Molino, Colorado Rapids netminder Clint Irwin nominated for his reaction save on Philly’s Conor Casey and Houston’s Tyler Deric on the ticket for his stop of Crew SC’s Kei Kamara.
Vote now for your top save. The winner will be announced on Friday.
Voting runs until 11:59 pm PT on Thursday. For complete coverage of the MLS Save of the Week – including an archive of all of this season’s nominees and winners – click here.
