Keller's PK stop on Findley earns SOTW

Stopping a Robbie Findley penalty kick did more for the Kasey Keller and the Seattle Sounders than earn a crucial point against Real Salt Lake last Thursday. It also earned the veteran goalkeeper the NAPA Save of the Week for Matchday 24.

Keller picked up his second Save of the Week honor of the season with the stop, which came in the 32nd minute of the Sounders’ scoreless draw against RSL at Qwest Field. Keller also won the award for Matchday 17.

Keller earned nearly 75 percent of the vote for his latest effort, easily topping a breakaway save by the Galaxy’s Donovan Ricketts on the Crew’s Steven Lenhart in the 20th minute of LA’s 3-1 win over Columbus last Saturday.

Toronto FC’s Stefan Frei, Colorado’s Matt Pickens and New England’s Matt Reis rounded out the field.
