His evening was highlighted by a penalty save after he guessed correctly to deny Carlos Vela the game’s go-ahead goal in the 60th minute.
Ochoa put together his best game in an RSL uniform. It is the first time in which Ochoa has been named to the MLS Team of the Week. Damir Kreilach leads all RSL players with two MLS Team of the Week nominations throughout the 2021 MLS season.
RSL is preparing to host LA Galaxy at home this upcoming Wednesday evening. Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. and can be viewed for free via the KSL Sports & KSL 5 TV apps or on KSL Sports dot com.
