Three Takeaways from #SACvSA - OurSports Central

June 4, 2024 – United Soccer League Championship (USL)
Sacramento Republic FC News Release

Today, the USL Championship announced that Republic FC goalkeeper Danny Vitiello’s 66th-minute save against the Tampa Bay Rowdies has been nominated for Fans’ Choice Save of the Week for Week 13. Voting is open now at USLChampionship.com through Friday, June 7 at 9:00 a.m. PT.

The leaping effort denied a second goal from the visitors mid-way through the second half. Tampa Bay’s Lewis Hilton went for goal on a set play opportunity, aiming for the near post, but Vitiello punched the ball away to keep it out of the top corner. Vitiello would finish the match with a season high eight saves.

This is Vitiello’s second consecutive nomination for the weekly fan vote and fourth this season. He won last week’s honor for a second half save that preserved Republic FC’s clean sheet against Birmingham Legion FC.
