The fans have spoken! Fury FC goalkeeper Callum Irving grabbed the USL Fans’ Choice Save of the Week for as his late game heroics against New York Red Bulls II last Sunday afternoon at TD Place won the weekly online poll.
Fury FC were trailing 2-1 against the Red Bulls II in a crucial contest in the race for the USL Cup Playoffs when Irving made an outstanding save to deny Florian Valot’s deflected shot in the 90th minute, before standing tall seconds later denying David Najem of a sure goal, which allowed Ottawa to earn a vital point in a 2-2 draw.
Irving received 51 percent of the poll conducted online at USLSoccer.com that concluded on Thursday morning.
Fury FC are currently enjoying their first full week of both rest and training under de Guzman as they ready to host Saint Louis FC next Sunday at 2 p.m. with important playoff points up for grabs for both sides.
