Against Toronto FC Adam Kwarasey was tremendous, making a series of point blank saves as the Timbers pushed for the tying goal and left him all alone, vulnerable to the quick counterattacking play of Toronto.
Kwarasey kept the Timbers within reach of one point as the team committed numbers forward again and again, so it is somewhat unfortunate that none of his point blank efforts managed to get any recognition for the MLS Save of the Week.
I mean, those saves are pretty good and all, but what about this fingertip save? (Save 1)
Or this hard shot from inside the box? (Save 2)
Or this close-in effort? (Save 3)
Ok, so maybe none of them were as pretty as the assorted saves up for Save of the Week, but Kwarasey played huge for the Timbers last weekend and in the morass of this season, that is something to feel positive about.
So, in the spirit of recognizing a solid save in an excellent match by Kwarasey, take a second and vote in the poll below for your Adam Kwarasey Save of the Week.
