Nathan Steinwascher (DET) - #DETvCHS, 3/19/22: Steinwascher earned his second consecutive nomination for a key late save in second-half stoppage time on the Charleston Battery’s Mauro Cichero that preserved his shutout and DCFC’s first win in the USL Championship.
Cristian Bonilla (SA) - #LAvSA, 3/19/22: The Colombian shot-stopper earned his second nomination in as many weeks as he first denied the LA Galaxy II’s Cameron Dunbar and then reflexively cleared the ball in mid-air with his left leg to deny a rebound opportunity.
