Winners announced for MLS Goal of the Year, Save of the Year

The final MLS postseason awards, Goal of the Year and Save of the Year, were determined by a fan vote.

The top goal was claimed by Vancouver Whitecaps forward Camilo, who led the league with 22 goals, for this amazing flying scissors-kick against the Portland Timbers. Here were all the finalists (you might remember Patrick Ianni won the award last year).

The top save goes to Real Salt Lake’s Nick Rimando for a stunning double save against the Colorado Rapids, including a scramble to push the ball off the goal line. Rimando also won last year, following Kasey Keller‘s back-to-back run in 2010 and 2011. Here were all the finalists.
