Chicago Fire rookie goalkeeper Sean Johnson earned his first NAPA MLS Save of the Week nomination after making a crucial stop in the 85th minute to preserve the Fire’s 3-2 win over league leaders Los Angeles Galaxy at The Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. The 21-year-old made the diving save to stop Galaxy substitute Alan Gordon’s header from reaching the bottom left corner of the net. Last Sunday’s victory also marked Johnson’s MLS debut, recording four saves for the Fire.
