NEW YORK – You would never know that Seattle Sounders goalkeeper Kasey Keller is closing in on retirement based on the quality of his saves of late.

For the second week in a row, Keller's heroics in goal have earned him Save of the Week honors, as he showed catlike reflexes to stop a point-blank, second-half strike from Chicago's Diego Cháves and preserve a 2-1 Sounders lead on April 9.

That stop dominated fan voting with 62.4 percent of the tallies. There was no contest this week with Donovan Ricketts of the LA Galaxy finishing a distant second to Keller (13.56 percent). The Jamaican's block of a close-range Chris Pontius header did not come close to challenging for the award.

2. Donovan Ricketts, LA 13.56%
