Alex Tambakis wins USL Save of the Week

The ATL UTD loanee took home the honors after an excellent individual performance, despite a loss

MLS: 2017 Portraits USA TODAY Sports

Alex Tambakis’ excellent save in the first half of the Charleston Battery’s loss to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds has earned him Save of the Week honors for week three in USL.

The award comes in spite of losing the game 2-1 thanks to two second half goals from Pittsburgh, but the goalkeeper, who holds the distinction of being Atlanta United’s first signing, had himself a good night, making a number of quality saves. The fact that he was on the losing side shows just how fickle the goalkeeping position can be.
