Nielsen wins SOTW over Hesmer

Tip save on Moffat enough for KC goalkeeper to top Hesmer

Jimmy Nielsen's one-handed tip save on the Crew's Adam Moffat has been voted the NAPA Save of the Week for Matchday 16, giving the Kansas City Wizards goalkeeper his fourth such award this season.

Seattle's Kasey Keller and Colorado's Matt Pickens trailed in the voting, while a second Nielsen effort during the Wizards' 1-0 win placed fifth.
