TAMPA, Fla. – Phoenix Rising FC goalkeeper Carl Woszczynski has earned the USL Fans' Choice Save of the Week for Week 18 of the 2018 season for his full-stretch save against Fresno FC this past Saturday at Chukchansi Park.
Quick instincts from the Phoenix goalkeeper kept Fresno's Pedro Ribeiro from sticking a curling shot into the left corner of the goal, allowing Woszczynski to notch his third of a total of five saves during the match. Despite the epic save, Fresno was able to walk away with a 4-0 victory.
Woszczynski's save earned 51 percent of the poll conducted online at USLSoccer.com that concluded Friday. OKC Energy FC's Bryan Byars took second place with 29 percent thanks to a fingertip save against a header from Las Vegas Lights FC’s Daigo Kobayashi. Charleston Battery's Odisnel Cooper took third at nine percent for a close-range save against Indy Eleven’s Carlyle Mitchell.
