Blake vs. NYCFC

Blake named IBX Fearless Man of the Match

Andre Blake made plenty of impressive saves this season, especially in the Union’s latest match against New York City FC on Saturday.

Blake saved back to back shots in the 73rd minute of the game by NYCFC forward David Villa in the center of the goal, and another seconds later by midfielder Alexander Ring.

Villa continued to fire at Blake throughout the match, including a left footed shot from the center of the box and another from the top of the box.

For his efforts, Blake was named IBX Live Fearless Man of the Match by Union fans, reeling in 61 percent of the votes.

The Boys in Blue will take on New York Red Bulls after the international break on Sunday, June 18. The game can be seen on ESPN at 5 p.m ET.
