Former Maryland soccer and current Minnesota United goalkeeper Dayne St. Clair played for the MLS All-Star team for the first time Wednesday night. With his heroics, St. Clair managed to come away with the game’s All-Star MVP Award.
St. Clair came on in the 32nd minute in front of his home fans at Allianz Field. From then on, St. Clair made some clutch saves for the MLS team, keeping a clean sheet before being subbed off in the 61st minute for NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

Being thrust into the starter role for Minnesota in week three, he’s been an absolute revelation for the side this season. His 79 saves, which are tied for the second most in the MLS, have helped his team get to fourth place in the Western Conference at the All Star break.
Starting in 2017 and 2018 for the Terps, St. Clair averaged fewer than one goal allowed per game in both seasons. The Canadian had a total of 43 appearances in net during his Maryland career.
