Starter: Nick Rimando

Nick Rimando played an essential role for Real Salt Lake on Saturday night. He was very active in the box, intercepted FC Dallas corner kicks and crosses, and made a save in the first half to keep the game even.

Another key play came in the final minutes when Rimando came all the way out of his box to boot away an opposing challenge by Dallas. He also had a lot of help from his backline, forced to make only one save all night.

But Rimando brings much more than just a save of the week, he is a leader on the field. He was key to keeping RSL organized and also motivated his teammates to keep fighting after the red card ejection.
