Jaime Penedo nominated for MLS Save of the Week

Jaime Penedo’s diving save on Steven Lenhart has been nominated for week 16 honors

With the LA Galaxy holding on to a narrow 1-0 lead against the San Jose Earthquakes, goalkeeper Jaime Penedo came up huge to preserve the win.

In the game’s dying moments, San Jose almost found their equalizer off a free kick, but Penedo leaped impressively and parried Steven Lenhart's header over the crossbar.

The Panamanian goalkeeper has been nominated for MLSsoccer.com’s alongside David Ousted, Troy Perkins, Joe Bendik and Donovan Ricketts. 

Voting runs until 11:59 pm PT on Thursday. Check out complete Save of the Week coverage — including a full archive of 2013 winners.
