Tucson goalkeeper claims inaugural honor for acrobatic stop against Tormenta FC

TAMPA, Fla. – FC Tucson goalkeeper Philip Ejimadu has claimed the USL League One Fans’ Choice Save of the Month for March and April of the 2019 season as his diving fingertip stop in Week 5 against South Georgia Tormenta FC at Kino Sports Complex took top spot in the online poll conducted over the past weekend.

Ejimadu, who has played every minute of the season so far for Tucson, averaged four saves per game over the opening five weeks of the season and produced his best effort to deny Tormenta’s Marco Micaletto from finding the bottom-right corner of the net with a lovely curling effort.

Ejimadu’s save earned 35 percent of the poll conducted online at that concluded on Monday. Pablo Jara’s reaction stop that preserved Tormenta’s inaugural League One win finished in second place with 30 percent of the vote, while Ryan Coulter’s acrobatic punch for Forward Madison against Orlando City B took third on 22 percent.
