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.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ola Kamara scored his 14th and 15th goals of the season and the Columbus Crew beat the New England Revolution 2-0 on Sunday night to keep their playoff hopes alive. 

Columbus (7-11-11), which played in the 2015 MLS Cup, is ninth in the Eastern Conference, but only five points behind D.C. United for the final playoff spot. New England (9-13-9) is seventh, one point back. 

In the 42nd minute, Kamara slid a shot through the legs of defender Darrius Barnes and it got past a diving Brad Knighton. Kamara added a penalty-kick goal in the 84th after he was nudged from behind by London Woodberry. 

Kamara has scored five times in the last three games and leads all MLS newcomers for goals scored this season. He trails New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips by five goals for the MLS Golden Boot. 

Revolution forward Kei Kamara made his return to Mapfre Stadium after being traded from the Crew in May.

MONTREAL - Kai Kamara scored in the first minute and Kelyn Rowe added two goals to help the New England Revolution beat the Montreal Impact 3-1 on Saturday night.

The Revolution (9-12-9), who lost to Dallas in the U.S. Open Cup final this week, posted a third straight win in Major League Soccer play with only their second road victory of the season. New England moved two points behind fifth-place Montreal in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Didier Drogba scored on a penalty for Montreal (9-9-4), which has only one win in seven games. Perhaps more alarmingly, the Impact are 0-3-1 and have conceded 11 goals in their last four home games.
