SANDY — Real Salt Lake keeper Nick Rimando has been named the Major League Soccer Player of the Month for March. The veteran Rimando took 11 of the 25 first-place votes in the polling and tacked on five second-place votes, beating out for the top spot his RSL teammate, Javier Morales.

The voting emphasized the dominating nature of the Utah side in March, during which RSL went a perfect 4-0-0 in combined CONCACAF Champions League and MLS regular season action (11 goals for, 2 goals against). With the award, Rimando becomes the first goalkeeper in MLS history to win the monthly honor three times, passing a short-list of two-time winners that includes Brad Friedel and Matt Pickens.
