Boyds, MD (April 24, 2018) – Washington Spirit goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe has been voted as the NWSL Save of the Week winner for Week 4 of the 2018 National Women’s Soccer League season.
Bledsoe’s Week 4 nomination came in recognition of her game-saving stop on a penalty kick taken by Portland Thorns midfielder Lindsey Horan in the 87th minute of Washington’s 1-1 draw on the road Friday night at Providence Park. The 26-year-old keeper stopped Horan’s shot with a diving effort to her left side, preventing a potential game-winner in the closing minutes of the game and preserving the road point for the Spirit.
Week 4 marks Bledsoe’s first NWSL Save of the Week award as a member of the Spirit. She is the only player to be nominated for the award in each of the first four weeks of the 2018 NWSL season.
