Stuver leads MLS with 58 saves and has an 81.7% save percentage, allowing 13 goals in 11 matches. Of Austin’s four shutouts this season, three have come on the road. No other team in MLS has done that this season. Stuver was named to the MLS Team of the Matchday after Austin FC’s 1-0 road win April 20 over the Houston Dynamo after he made six saves for the shutout win.

Austin FC is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday against FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium in Frisco.
