TAMPA, Fla. – Forward Madison FC goalkeeper Ryan Coulter has earned the USL League One Fans’ Choice Save of the Week for Week 4 of the 2019 season as his near-post punched denial against Orlando City B last Friday night that helped the Flamingos earn their first victory in club history took top spot in the online poll that concluded on Friday lunchtime.
Coulter sits second in League One with 11 saves through Madison’s first three outings, with his late save against Orlando among the best. With the Flamingos ahead late, Coulter got across to his near post to punch clear a tight-angle free kick by Serginho and preserved all three points for the visitors.
Coulter’s save earned 43 percent of the poll conducted online at USLLeagueOne.com that concluded on Friday morning. Orlando City B’s Juliano Chade finished second on 33 percent for his diving stop that kept out a curling effort by FMFC’s J.C. Banks, while the Richmond Kickers’ Akira Fitzgerald took third with 24 percent for his standout early save on Greenville Triumph SC’s Paul Clowes in Richmond’s first win of 2019.
