It's time to select September's best stop with voting now open for the Ardent Credit Union Save of the Month!
Both big stops came in the Union's final regular season match of the month which took place in Atlanta. The first nominee is a combination play from Best XI candidates Andre Blake and Jakob Glesnes. After forcing a turnover at the center line, Atlanta's Araújo raced up the flank and picked out a pass into the path of Brooks Lennon. One on one against Blake, the wing back rushed a shot as Jack Elliott pressured him but the Jamaican keeper made the diving stop to his right. The rebound fell directly into the path for Dwyer on the counter attack run but his tap in effort was turned away with a sliding stop by Glesnes. Frustrated once, the ATL forward was left wondering how he didn’t score as the second rebound in his path was tapped by the Union defender to Blake down on the turf to end the play.
The other nominee is a clutch save by Brick Wall Blake against Josef Martinez. With the match deadlocked still as the clock hit second half stoppage time, Blake kept the shutout with a key stop on a diving header from Martinez.
