Vote now for MLS Save of the Week: Week 9
Goalkeepers all across MLS made crucial and spectacular saves in Week 9. Now it is up to you to decide whose was the best.
Two goalkeepers saved penalty kicks, one in a losing effort – when Philadelphia's Zac MacMath's made a fingertip stop on Seattle's Osvaldo Alonso – and the other as part of a shutout win, when Luis Robles of New York deflected the spot kick by Blas Pérez of Dallas over the crossbar. MacMath and Robles were hardly alone in making outstanding plays, however.
The Chicago Fire's Sean Johnson went a long way to deny Real Salt Lake's Joao Plata early in their match (Plata would have the last laugh), while Bobby Shuttleworth for New England and Eric Kronberg for Kansas City both adjusted quickly to make reaction saves from less than 10 yards away.
