Penedo put on a goalkeeping clinic against Seattle Sounders FC on Soccer Sunday, turning away all 10 of Seattle’s shots on goal, and making some spectacular saves in the process. Thanks to Penedo’s clean sheet and Alan Gordon’s 23rd minute tally, LA secured a 1-0 victory to put an end to the club’s four-game winless streak.
The Galaxy ‘keeper wasted no time making his presence felt, especially when challenged by Sounders forward Lamar Neagle, who was denied on each of his five shots on goal. In the ninth minute, Neagle directed a header toward the far corner of the net, but Penedo extended every inch of his six-foot frame to tip it over the crossbar. Penedo’s fantastic effort earned him a spot on ESPN’s SportsCenter Top 10, but his work was far from done.
The LA Galaxy return to action this Saturday when they host Sporting Kansas City at the StubHub Center at 10:30 p.m. ET (MLS LIVE).
