SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Jeff Attinella is up for MLS Save of the Week!
Starting for banged up goalkeeper Nick Rimando, Attinella turned in a fine performance in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Sporting Kansas City, making eight saves to keep the shutout and preserve the point for RSL. Attinella is nominated for one of his first saves of the match, a stop on Kansas City midfielder Benny Feilhaber's flying first half volley.
Attinella is up against Dallas’ Chris Seitz, Portland’s Andrew Weber, Houston’s Tally Hall and Philadelphia’s Zac MacMath for the award. Attinella has one career Save of the Week win, winning for a stop in his first career MLS game last July at FC Dallas. RSL has two Save of the Week wins this year, with Rimando bringing home the award in the first two weeks of the season.
Voting for Save of the Week runs until 12:59 a.m. MT on Friday morning. Click here to vote for Jeff!
