LOS ANGELES (AP) — New England goalkeeper Matt Turner made two penalty kick saves and FC Dallas’ Ricardo Pepi scored off the underside of the crossbar to seal the MLS team’s victory over a team of Liga MX stars in the MLS All-Star Game. The MLS team won the shootout 3-2 after finishing regulation tied at 1. Liga MX MVP Jonathan Rodríguez scored in the 20th minute of regular time and Jesús Murillo evened it on a header off a cross from Los Angeles FC teammate Eduard Atuesta early in the second half. Pepi finally scored on MLS’ fifth attempt to end an entertaining evening for the All-Star teams representing North America’s two biggest soccer leagues.
