Keller picks up second straight Save of the Week

Seattle’s Kasey Keller has won his second consecutive NAPA Save of the Week honor and his third of the season, this time for a right-handed stab on the Crew’s Guillermo Barros Schelotto that fans voted the best save of Matchday 25.

Keller’s diving stop not only denied Schelotto his team-high eighth goal of the season, but also helped preserve a clean sheet in Seattle’s emphatic 4-0 win last Saturday in Columbus. Keller – who also won the award last week for a PK stop against RSL’s Robbie Findley as well as for Matchday 17 – earned roughly 43 percent of the vote to win the award this week.
