Callum Irving (Vancouver FC) 

Irving had an unbelievable goalkeeping performance against Atlético Ottawa on Sunday, making five saves to earn his club a draw. Even on Atléti’s lone goal of the match, he stopped their first effort from Ollie Bassett and got a piece of the rebound before it ended up in the back of the net.



Kadin Chung (Vancouver FC) 

Chung set up Vancouver’s equalizer on Sunday with a brilliant bit of skill to beat his man down the line, and an even better delivery into the box for Alejandro Díaz to head home. Defensively, Chung won three tackles, made four interceptions and won nine duels during an all-around fantastic performance.

Dan Nimick (Halifax Wanderers) 

Nimick played provider on Halifax’s equalizer on Saturday against Cavalry with a lovely cross. Defensively, he was solid as ever, winning all seven of his aerial duels, and making seven clearances.

Mo Babouli (York United)

York United’s captain led them to victory on Friday against Valour with a goal and an assist. He also won eleven duels and was fouled five times during an incredibly hardworking performance.

Rubén Del Campo (Atlético Ottawa)
