She may have ended up on the losing side but Wellington Phoenix goalkeeper Brianna Edwards produced one of the saves of the season during their 3-2 loss to Newcastle.
Fresh from her penalty-saving heroics for Wellington in their 2-0 win over Canberra United the 21-year-old was at it again, this time thwarting the in-form Sarina Bolden from point-blank range.
Coming into the side in place of the suspended Rylee Foster, Edwards pulled off a string of top saves but her flying stop to deny Bolden is as good a display of goalkeeping you’ll see all season.
Lauren Allan’s pinpoint delivery from the right was met by a towering header from Bolden who, expecting the net to ripple, saw the flying figure of Edwards swat away her effort with incredible skill.
“Sarina Bolden is stunned, she cannot believe she’s been denied,” said Network 10 commentator Ben Homer. “Brianna Edwards, she was NO chance when this ball was in the air. That is just outstanding.
“You could just watch that all day, it is that good!”Network 10 commentator Ben Homer on Brianna Edwards’ save
