Real Salt Lake vs. Colorado Rapids report card
Nick Rimando (GK) »2 of 13 «
Nick wasn't necessarily tested with shots on goal, but Colorado did send some very good crosses into the box that made Nick look like superman as he parried two out of harm's way and went skyward on another two to pluck them literally off the heads of waiting Colorado players. But what Nick can do with his hands can often be outdone by his feet. His distribution with his feet was superb Saturday night as he sent ball after ball downfield with pace - both set balls and punts - to find his players. What makes Nick's distribution so incredible is his instinctive ability to find players in stride and put the ball right at their best foot. With all that, Nick not only won the clean sheet, RSL's sixth straight Rocky Mountain cup, but his 132nd career win, which moves him past Zach Thornton for sole possession of No. 2 on the All-Time MSL career wins list.
