With his team ahead 1-0 in second-half stoppage time against the Kansas City Wizards, Keller made the save of the year with a quick reaction on Wizards midfielder Chance Myers’ right-footed shot from just outside the six-yard box. Keller redirected the shot from the left side wide to the right of the goal, preserving the 1-0 victory.
