[MLS] Landon Donovan won the 2009 AT&T Goal of the Year, his first MLS goal of the year award in nine years in the league, and Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Pat Onstad was awarded the Degree Men Save of the Year.
 
Donovan struck a stunning left-footed volley that curled into the far left side netting past an outstretched Matt Reis to give the Galaxy a 1-0 lead over the Revolution on Aug. 8.

Donovan's remarkable strike edged a thunderous volley by Real Salt Lake midfielder Clint Mathis and a long-range blast by New England Revolution forward Edgaras Jankauskas.

Donovan's goal:
 


Onstad's double save against Colorado earned him the first Save of the Year award. With his team ahead 1-0 late in the second half, Onstad stoned Rapids forward Conor Casey on a penalty kick attempt by reaching high with his left hand to parry away Casey's shot.

On the ensuing rebound attempt, Onstad recovered and saved another shot off the line from Rapids midfielder Terry Cooke. Onstad's save secured a 1-0 shutout for the Dynamo.
