Nick Rimando kept Real Salt Lake in the game with two terrific saves in the first half while RSL was finding its footing. He had less to do in the second half, but that’s when Collin beat him in the air on Kansas City’s only shot on goal in the second half. It was enough to tie things up in the 72nd minute.

Rimando’s phenomenal save on Grahm Zusi’s second half shot kept RSL in the game for a second shootout in the same number of MLS Finals appearances for RSL. Rimando was the hero of 2009 with his PK saves against Los Angeles during the MLS Cup, but it was not to be Saturday as Sporting KC’s shooters were just one better than RSL.
