D.C. United’s Bill Hamid youngest player to reach 600 saves in MLS.

On Saturday, D.C. United hosted the rival LA Galaxy at RFK. During the match, D.C. United’s Goalkeeper, Bill Hamid, made his 600th save in Major League Soccer.  At 26 years, 6 months, and 9 days, Hamid became the youngest player in MLS history to reach the 600 save record.  Hamid also holds the MLS record for the youngest player to record 45 shutouts.  Bill made his debut with the United as a 19-year-old and became the youngest goalkeeper in MLS history to record a win.

Hamid recording his 600th save seems to have been one of the only bright spots for United on Saturday.  Luciano Acosta had a career high of 5 shots, unfortunately, none found the back of the net.  There were numerous scoring chances by both sides, but the match ended in a 0-0 draw.  For D.C. United, this was the third game in 8 days.  They have some well-deserved rest before taking on Toronto on Saturday, June 17.

Vamos United!
