Not even close: FC Dallas' Chris Seitz runs away with Week 5 Save of the Week honors for PK stop


When Boniek Garcia steps up to the spot for the Houston Dynamo, you expect him to put the ball in the back of the net. FC Dallas' Chris Seitz was having none of that in Week 5.

With FC Dallas leading 4-1 in their eventual victory by the same scoreline against the Dynamo, Seitz found himself staring down Boniek after a penalty call on Jair Benitez. The Honduran went left, and Seitz was all over it, pushing the ball away to keep his club in command in one of the weekend's rivalry clashes.

Seitz was also commanding when it came to Save of the Week voting, capturing nearly two-thirds of the vote to breeze past the Philadelphia Union's Zac MacMath and Real Salt Lake's Jeff Attinella.

Final Votes - Week 5:

1. Chris Seitz (DAL): 62.29%
2. Zac MacMath (PHI): 12.77%
3. Jeff Attinella (RSL): 12.33%
4. Andrew Weber (POR): 6.94%
5. Tally Hall (HOU): 5.67%
