El Paso Goalie Logan Ketterer Named to MLS Team of the Week
It was quite a week for El Paso Locomotive goalie Logan Ketterer. He got called up by the Portland Timbers to help them out at goalie because they were running thin at the position. He jumped in at goal against the San Jose Earthquakes and performed amazingly. He not only shut out San Jose, but he also stopped a PK from the all-time MLS goal scorer.
Now Ketterer can add making the MLS Team of the Week to his list of accomplishments. Along with Ketterer, fellow Portland Timber Eryk Williamson was also named to the MLS Team of the Week after assisting on both Timbers goals against San Jose.
Just in case you need more Ketterer, here is a solid 10 minutes of him making saves.
If you've made it this far in this article, chances are you are a soccer, or futbol, fan. And here in the Borderland we know it's all about El Tri. For those not familiar with the term, that's the Mexican national team's nickname which comes from the the Mexican flag "el tricolor", meaning three colors.
One of Mexico's top players, forward Javier "Chicharito" Hernández will be taking on the Timbers with the LA Galaxy in a nationally-televised match this Saturday that will be on ABC. The Galaxy have started the season off hot with a 4 and 1 start, but Chicharito has been even hotter, leading the league with 7 goals.
The Timbers have struggled at the start of the 2021 season but are hoping this past weekend's win is a sign of things to come.
