SANDY, Utah — Tim Howard made six saves in regulation and stopped three shots on penalty kicks to lead Everton over the Major League Soccer team in the MLS All-Star Game on Wednesday night.


Howard, the U.S. national team goalkeeper, was voted the most valuable player after stopping Seattle Sounders midfielder Freddie Ljunberg on the final penalty kick.

The Premier League club wrapped up its North American preseason tour by becoming the first international team to win in the MLS All-Star Game.

Louis Saha scored the only regulation goal for Everton in the 12th minute. Brad Davis of the Houston Dynamo scored for the MLS stars, who held a 21-11 shots advantage.
