Reis wins MLS save of the week

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - It's a saaaaaaaaaave!

New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis took home the MLS Save of the Week award for Week 20, the league announced today.

Reis sprawling one-handed save in a 0-0 draw on the road against Sporting Kansas City last Saturday earned just over 45 percent of all fan voting.

Reis made the award-winning save in the 52nd minute last Saturday, July 21, at Sporting Kansas City. With his momentum going to his left, Reis recovered and dove back across the goal to his right to stop Jacob Petersons headed shot.

Reis save of the week is his first and the first for the Revs in 2012. Its also the clubs first weekly save honor since Week 7 of the 2011 season when Bobby Shuttleworth won for a double save at Chivas USA.
