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.

That save proved to be crucial as the matched ended in a 2-2 draw giving the Dynamo a point in the standings.
