Joe Bendik wins second straight MLS Save of the Week award

Make it back-to-back weeks at the top for Joe Bendik.

Orlando City SC came back from 2-0 to pick up a point in a 2-2 road draw with Columbus Crew SC last Saturday, but would have wasted the comeback had it not been for Bendik. In the 84th minute on a promising sequence for Crew SC, Bendik made himself big and stopped a shot from Ola Kamara to keep the Lions on even terms.

The block not only helped Orlando City get a result, but saw Bendik win his league-leading seventh MLS Save of the Week award, presented by Phillips 66, this season and second straight. Bendik smashed Tim Howard of the Colorado Rapids in Week 20's final round of voting, taking 94 percent of the vote.
