SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Jeff Attinella has been nominated for MLS Save of the Week!
Attinella is up for the award for his 73rd minute double save on Colorado’s Kamani Hill and Dillon Serna. The fine blocks are up against a combo stop from D.C.’s Bill Hamid and Chris Korb and saves from New England’s Brad Knighton, Dallas’ Raul Fernandez and Houston defender David Horst.
Attinella has been nominated once this year for Save of the Week, with his stop on Sporting Kansas City’s Benny Feilhaber in RSL’s scoreless draw at SKC losing out to Dallas ‘keeper Chris Seitz for the Week 5 award. Attinella has one Save of the Week win in his MLS career, earning the honor last summer for a fine stop in RSL’s 3-0 win at FC Dallas on July 13, 2013.
RSL has two Save of the Week wins this season, with regular goalkeeper Nick Rimando taking home the honor in both of the first two weeks of the year.
Voting for Save of the Week runs until 12:59 a.m. MT on Friday morning. Click here to vote for Jeff!
