Several former Maryland men’s soccer players have found success at the professional level following their respective careers in College Park, with Minnesota United FC goalkeeper Dayne St. Clair being the latest to breakthrough in the MLS this season.
After spending the previous season on loan at San Antonio FC, the second year pro has been his manager’s keeper of choice over the last four matches, and he’s been in strong form. St. Clair made his first appearance in Minnesota’s starting eleven on Sept. 6, recording three saves to earn a clean sheet in his MLS debut.
St. Clair started in each of the next two matches as well, receiving Man of the Match honors on Sept. 13 for his five save performance in a 1-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City. He continued to show his shot-blocking prowess Saturday, making eight saves including one on a penalty kick to earn his second consecutive Man of the Match.
Minnesota United FC are set to take the field again on Wednesday, as the club looks to to improve upon the 2-1-1 record its maintained with St. Clair between the sticks.
