Los Angeles Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo kept Real Salt Lake at bay on Wednesday to extend his side’s unbeaten run in MLS.
Penedo made six saves as the Galaxy claimed a 0-0 draw away to RSL, making it five matches without defeat for Bruce Arena’s men.
But it was Penedo’s opposite number – RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando – who arguably produced the most decisive moment of the match, saving Juninho’s 92nd-minute penalty to ensure both sides claimed a point.
The match was delayed by a bit over an hour after lightning flashes were seen around Rio Tinto Stadium just prior to kick-off.
The Galaxy moved into fourth in the Western Conference with 14 points, while RSL (11) rose to seventh, two points adrift of the play-off spots.
