Vote now for Donovan Ricketts for MLS Save of the Week: Week 12

Ricketts' point-blank stop of NY's Wright-Phillips kept Timbers in game & nominated for SOTW

Goalkeepers were kept busy across MLS last week, but only five have made the shortlist for the next MLS Save of the Week award with Portland Timbers' Donovan Ricketts making his return to SOTW consideration thanks to a strong stop on Bradley Wright-Phillips. 

Among his fellow nominees: Jon Busch in contention thanks to his denial of Warren Creavalle in San Jose's win over Houston and though Stefan Frei made a costly mistake to allow Gershon Koffie to score Vancouver's second goal on Saturday, but redeemed himself with a late, late block on the Whitecaps midfielder to preserve a road point for the Seattle Sounders.

D.C. United's Bill Hamid was also on song with his save of a Giles Barnes effort at midweek, while Montreal netminder Troy Perkins did well to deny Kamani Hill a second tally in the Colorado Rapids' 4-1 spanking of the Impact. 

Cast your vote for Ricketts in the poll here. Voting runs until 11:59 pm PT on Thursday.
