COLUMBUS, Ohio Pandel Savic, who quarterbacked Ohio State to its first Rose Bowl victory in 1950, passed away Tuesday in Columbus at the age of 92. Officials at Muirfield Village Golf Club, where Savic was the Memorial Tournament’s general chairman emeritus, announced the news of Savic’s passing.

 

Savic came to Ohio State in the mid-1940s from Girard, Ohio, and Girard High School; this after immigrating to the United States from his home country of Macedonia at age nine. He was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran upon enrolling at Ohio State in 1946, having previously enlisted and fought in World War II.

 

A three-year letterman (1947-48-49), Savic was Ohio State’s passing leader in both 1948 and 1949. He had a fine senior season for the Buckeyes, who won the Big Ten championship for coach Wes Fesler with a 5-1-1 conference mark and then completed the 7-1-2 campaign with a 17-14 Rose Bowl win over California.

 

Savic, who was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009, is one of the founding members of Muirfield Village Golf Club and served as general chairman of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide for more than 30 years.

 

Memorial services are pending.

Miguel Almirón sent a perfectly placed ball into the box, threading a pass between Union goalkeeper Andre Blake and a defender to an open Martínez, who calmly finished with a deflection to the center of goal (Watch Goal).

Following a Philadelphia goal, Martínez then completed his hat trick in the 83rd minute to give Atlanta a 3-1 lead with a powerful penalty kick goal just inside the left post (Watch Goal). In 34 career MLS regular season matches, Martínez has scored 31 goals for a 0.91 goals-per-game average, the best in MLS history among players with at least 20 career goals scored.

NEW YORK (Wednesday, June 6, 2018) – Columbus Crew SC goalkeeper Zack Steffen was voted the MLS Player of the Month presented by EA SPORTS™ by members of the media for the month of May of the 2018 MLS season.

The 23-year-old did not allow a single goal in five matches in May, with Crew SC compiling an undefeated 3-0-2 mark over the month as part of an active eight-game unbeaten streak. Steffen’s active 495-minute shutout streak is the ninth-longest for an individual goalkeeper in MLS history, the longest in Columbus history, and was the eighth-longest shutout streak for a team in the league.

Columbus began the month with a 0-0 draw at Seattle Sounders FC on May 5, with Steffen making one save in the match, a close-range diving stop on Clint Dempsey in the 73rdminute to keep his club even (Watch Save). Days later, Steffen made three saves in Crew SC’s 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union on May 9.

The U.S. Men’s National Team standout continued his stellar play with a four-save performance in a 3-0 victory over the Chicago Fire on May 12, including a diving stop off a free kick attempt by Diego Campos in the 31st minute (Watch Save). A week later, Steffen registered a season-high six saves in a 1-0 Crew SC victory at the New England Revolution on May 19, highlighted by a diving stop on Teal Bunbury’s shot in the 38th minute (Watch Save ). Steffen concluded the month with a three-save performance in a 0-0 draw at Sporting Kansas City on May 27, registering one of his 17 saves on the month with a diving stop on Daniel Salloi’s rocket from the top of the box in the 63rd minute (Watch Save).
