2015 NCAA Save of the Year

This year Everybody Soccer will be tracking the top saves from NCAA, focusing mostly on men's D-I but hopefully incorporating women's as well as lower D-II and D-III. At the end of the season, we'll have a big bracket for everyone to vote on the first official NCAA Save of the Year. If you have a suggestion, please get in touch by clicking the contact link in the black footer at the bottom of the page.

August 30th

While Purdue didn't pull out the win, Erika Yohn kept it close in overtime against Missouri with this dive admist the chaos.

Ohio State is thankful for recent transfer Chris Froschauer and his shot stopping ability, seen here against Binghamton at the 1:00 mark.

Tennessee's Julie Eckel holds a shot most goalkeepers would be thankful to tip away. Easier said than done.

August 28th

Oakland's Wes Mink gets back and up to tip the ball off the crossbar. Not your typical upper ninety save but important nonetheless.

Ideally we'd have a better camera angle on this redirection but it's what we have. Marco Velez saves South Carolina with this tricky ball.

Alyssa Giannetti makes two awkward but needed saves to keep Virginia from scoring against Cal Poly.

Can't have too many saves on one day. Andi Tostanoski makes a tough save look easy against Notre Dame.

August 27th

Michelle Craft and San Diego didn't pull out the win but she did chalk up this extension save for her resume.


August 23rd

Mimi Borkan keeps her head on a swivel with this double save against Massachusetts. Not the best quality but trust me they are two great saves.

Our first submission! William and Mary's Caroline Casey preserves the shutout with this fantastic save.

August 20th

Freshman Chase Therrien helps keep this shot out of the net for Incarnate Word.

August 15th

Lipscomb's Micah Bledsoe keeps Louisville to only one goal, with multiple big saves. You can catch most of the eight save performance here, including the one below.

August 14th

Senior goalkeeper Kyle Dal Santo gets up and away in an exhibition match against Xavier.
