With about 20 seconds remaining in regulation, he deflected this low shot from Duch with his left leg That save outlasted Vinc’s stop against Athan Iannucci against the Stealth in Week #5 of the regular season, earning 65% of the votes. “Vno” will take on the winner of the Brad Self vs. Ian Llord breakaway goal battle in the second round.

Congratulations also go out to Kim Parker from Hamlin, N.Y. for being selected as the first winning voter. Remember, one fan who votes for the winning play each week will receive a prize, so keep voting!

The next matchup in the first round in the Play of the Year bracket comes from the Behind-the-Back Goal Region.
