Jaime Penedo's jaw-dropping save in the LA Galaxy's victory against the Vancouver Whitecaps this past weekend might be as clutch as they come.
As a result, Penedo won the Save of the Week award in Week 26 by a landslide for his stop on Jordan Harvey in the second half of the Galaxy's 1-0 road win in Vancouver. The spectacular 82nd-minute denial occurred after a Kekuta Manneh shot hit the post and fell to Harvey, who then shot in front of the open goal before Penedo scrambled to make a goal-line save that assured LA would take all three points from the Western Conference bout.
Penedo claimed more than 61 percent of all the week's votes.
