San Antonio FC goalkeeper’s diving stop against Tulsa earns top spot in weekly poll

TAMPA, Fla. – San Antonio FC goalkeeper Matt Cardone has earned the USL Fans’ Choice Save of the Week for Week 27 of the 2018 season as his spectacular diving stop against Tulsa Roughnecks FC last Saturday night at ONEOK Field took top spot in the weekly online poll.

Cardone kept San Antonio’s deficit at one in the battle between neighboring Western Conference sides as he scrambled back towards his goal and produced an acrobatic left-handed save to keep out an ambitious lob from distance by Tulsa forward Isaac Diaz in second-half stoppage time.

Cardone’s save earned 29 percent of the poll conducted online at that concluded on Friday. Louisville City FC’s Greg Ranjitsingh finished second with 25 percent for his outstanding reaction save to parry Neco Brett’s header away from goal in its 2-2 draw with Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on Saturday, while Las Vegas Lights FC’s Ricardo Ferriño took third for his spectacular stop at full stretch to deny Adrian Diz Pe’s headed effort in its match against the Portland Timbers 2 last Sunday.
