Defender Kelvin Leerdam named to MLS Team of the Week for Week 17

Major League Soccer on Monday named Seattle Sounders defender Kelvin Leerdam to the Week 17 Team of the Week for his performance in the Rave Green’s 1-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday.

With the match seemingly destined for a draw, Leerdam secured three massive points for the Rave Green six minutes into second-half stoppage time, settling a pass from fellow defender Brad Smith and firing home the decisive goal. The Dutch defender, who sits second on the team in goals scored with five, also put in a solid shift defensively, as the team recorded its sixth clean sheet of the 2019 season.

The Sounders hit the road once again this week with a clash against New York City FC on Wednesday (4:00 p.m. PT; JOEtv, YouTube TV, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM).
