All the Awards
Andre Blake must really like playing on national television on Sundays. Against Seattle Sounders FC this past weekend, Blake made five saves (all in the second half), including three highlight reel saves. He earned his ninth clean sheet, extending his career high, while lowering his goals against average to 1.25, the best mark of his career. He was named the IBX Live Fearless Man of the Match, MLS Team of the Week, Allstate Defensive Play of the Match and nominated for MLS Save of the Week. But for Blake, that's just all in a day's work.
Sunday morning, four Union players were called up for international duty during the international break, and on Monday, another member of the organization was called up. Matthew Real was called up for the U-18 US Men's National Team camp in Spain, where he will train with the team and participate in international friendlies for 10 days before returning to Bethlehem Steel FC.
