Tyler Deric recorded his second-ever MLS shutout on Saturday against the Philadelphia Union, and he had to earn it. At the start of the second half, Andrew Wenger played a ball towards goal that Conor Casey stretched for but couldn't get a toe on. Deric switched from expecting a deflection to blocking the rolling ball. Casey was still around to recover the spilled ball, but Deric got down to get his hand on the follow-up shot and preserve the clean sheet.
Tally Hall recorded his first Save of the Week honor in Week 8 against New York. He's up for the award yet again, this time for his diving save to keep Toronto FC's Luke Moore from finding the back of the net. Hall used full extension and deflected the ball with his left hand to keep the match tied at 2-2. That save proved to be crucial as the matched ended in a 2-2 draw giving the Dynamo a point in the standings.
