Jamie Penedo's save against Vancouver Whitecaps FC finishes second in Save of the Year voting

By Adam Serrano

LA Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo finished second in MLSsoccer.com's Save of the Year voting as Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando took home the honors. 

Penedo's remarkable stop of a close range Vancouver Whitecaps FC defender Jordan Harvey effort back in August earned 24.47 percent of the vote in what was an extremely close tally finishing less than six percentage points behind Rimando's save during RSL's August draw with the Colorado Rapids which garnered 29.94 percent. To show just how close the voting was, FC Dallas' Raul Fernandez finished in third with 22.3 percent for his save on Galaxy forward Gyasi Zardes in July while Portland Timbers' Donovan Ricketts save on Vancouver back in October earned 23.28 percent of the voting. 

Meanwhile, Vancouver Whitecaps FC forward Camilo earned the Goal of the Year honors.  Both the Goal of the Year and the Save of the Year were selected by fan voting on MLSsoccer.com
