Blake vs. Seattle

Andre Blake named IBX Live Fearless Union vs. Seattle Sounders FC Man of the Match

For the third time in four matches, Andre Blake was named the IBX Live Fearless Man of the Match. 

Blake once again stood on his head, making five saves in the match, all of which came in the second half. He made two big stops against Clint Dempsey in the 62nd and 64th minutes. 

But where Blake excelled was in the 81st minute, when Seattle's Will Bruin ripped a shot from outside the box near the right corner. Blake was forced to make a leaping save into the air, barely getting his hand on the ball enough to push the shot wide. His save was nominated for the MLS Save of the Week, and make sure to vote for Blake. 

With the victory, Blake secured his ninth clean sheet of the season, extending his career high. His five home clean sheets ties his career high as well.
