O’Brian White captures AT&T Goal of the Week
Header by Seattle Sounders striker is runaway winner for Week 4
It’s as impressive a header as you’ll see anywhere and it was the runaway winner of the AT&T Goal of the Week award for Week 4.
Seattle Sounders forward O’Brian White had to fight off two Chicago Fire defenders and still generated enough power and a wicked swerve on a header that beat the goalkeeper from about 15 yards out.
The other goals in the running for the weekly award did not seriously challenge the Sounders striker. The closest was Vancouver’s Camilo (13 percent), whose goal was perhaps overshadowed by the skill and through pass of teammate Davide Chiumiento.

And to absolutely no fanfare or MLS press release (that I could find, anyway), Kasey Keller has secured Save of the Week honors for Week 4 of MLS play. This is his second honor in a row. Get it, Kasey!

Yikes, Sean Johnson had such a bad week. Poor kid.
Kasey Keller is up for MLS Save of the Week (wk. 4)!
One of the Chicago commentators inferred that Kasey Keller’s age (41 years) is automatically a ‘negative’ when gauging performance expectations in goal. Of course, when your age starts to climb in numbers, your skill set and range begin to decline; it’s inevitable in all physical professions. But haven’t we all learned that some things are better with age?
Once Keller starting putting in a showstopping effort in the second half, the commentator respectfully took back what he had earlier implied about Kasey; not because he had to, but because he realized that he was wrong.
If you get a chance, be sure to vote for Kasey. Not solely for save of the week, but because his solid performance assured the Sounders their first victory of the 2011 season.

Kasey Keller’s diving stop of Chris Wondolowski last Saturday at Buck Stadium not only kept the reigning Golden Boot winner off the board in a crucial game. It was also the best save of the week.
The Seattle Sounders veteran captured nearly 34 percent of the vote to win his first MLS Save of the Week honor of the 2011 season, narrowly topping a tip save by Houston’s Tally Hall on Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry. Keller turned Wondolowski aside after the San Jose star worked his way into the penalty box and let fly a scorching right-footed shot from just inside the penalty box in the ninth minute of the eventual 2-2 draw.
