    So let me get this straight: Marcelo Silva (17 minutes played) played enough that you could evaluate him and give him a grade of 1. But Luke Mulholland (21 minutes played) didn't play enough for you to evaluate him? OK then.

    While most of the assessment is correct. You have notch Rimando up and ding Glad a little more.

    Rimando - 8 or 8.5. He had multiple tremendous saves that kept RSL alive despite being down a man.

    Glad was not nearly perfect. 5.5-6 He was a step slow and Jamieson's goal and gave up a poor angle. He is normally solid but really "nearly perfect" he was not.

    A 6 for Plata is fine. His pace was good but blew several opportunities.
    Saucedo a 6, he brought energy but missed the easiest attempt of the night.

    The red card was a very poor decision that hopefully gets reversed. Vazquez (the head ref) had only done 15 MLS games and his inexperience was ever present. The VAR official has hardly done any MLS games (just came from NASL) and his decision with the help of VAR was terrible. According to the rules if should have never gone to VAR, PRO needs to learn their own rules. A Yellow and free kick outside the box was the right call on this play.
