Allstate Save of the Game: Alejandro Gomez, Santos de Guapiles (48')

With a 2-0 aggregate lead at halftime of its 2017 Scotiabank CONCACAF League quarterfinal, second leg against visiting Chorrillo FC, the last thing Santos de Guapiles wanted to do was concede an early second-half goal.  If not for the heroics of goalkeeper Alejandro Gomez, it could have happened.  Chorrillo’s Luis Hurtado burst into the right side of the box, muscling his way to the Santos goal.  When the time was right, Hurtado unleashed a right-footed shot from five-yards out.  Before the ball could sneak inside the near post, Gomez got down to make the block and earn the Allstate Save of the Game.  There were no goals in the second half and Santos advanced to the semifinals.
