Allstate Save of the Game: Benji Villalobos, Aguila (5th penalty kick)

Real Esteli forced its Scotiabank CONCACAF League Round of 16 series to go to penalty kicks on Tuesday night, after posting a 1-0 win over visiting Aguila for a 1-1 aggregate score.  Both sides converted their first pair of penalty kicks.  On Real Esteli’s third attempt, however, Aguila goalkeeper Benji Villalobos blocked Carlos Chavarria’s attempt.  Heading into the fifth round, Aguila was ahead 4-3, meaning that Gregorio Torres needed to net or Real Esteli would be eliminated.  Villalobos, once again, came up big to make the Allstate Save of the Game.
