Jordan Allen led the charge to a much needed victory on the road.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 7.5 Nick came up very big on two different occasions making saves that helped earn a road win. He was "this close" to stopping another penalty too. Nice game for Rimando.

Demar Phillips - 6.5 Phillips is looking more and more like he belongs on this team for good reason. He does things that no outside back has done for this team in its history with his ability to get involved in the offense and be there on defense as needed.

Elias Vasquez - 5.5 Vasquez had one bad tackle higher in the field that left Olave and Rimando scrambling and an absolutely unnecessary tackle in the box at the end of the game that gave Chicago some life and a slim chance to come back. These are the kind of errors a young player will make. But hey, we still won.

Jamison Olave - 7 Olave played solid and not much got through him. His presence is enough to keep things at bay and it worked against Chicago.

Tony Beltran - 6.5 This was a pretty quiet game for Tony, but as a defender that is not a bad thing.

Kyle Beckerman - 7 Beckerman looked as good as he has all year by breaking up plays and making key passes that lead to scoring opportunities.

Jordan Allen - 8.5 Two assists for Allen. He is  making his case to be a permanent starter with these sorts of performances. He was involved in most of the good things that were happening on the field, especially on the offensive side of the ball. His vision was what impressed me most.

Luke Mulholland - 7.5 Mulholland looked better in his passing game and had a very nice finish with the keeper rushing him.

Luis Gil - 6.5 That dummy run was fantastic to set up Saborio for an open look at the goal. He wasn't involved in everything, but he had a pretty good game.

Alvaro Saborio - 7.5 Good to see Sabo get a goal. And that placement was impeccable. I don't think he could have put that ball too many places to be able to score the goal.

Devon Sandoval - 7.5 Sandoval was involved throughout and had a selfless assist to set up Mulholland for a better look at goal. He held up the ball like a boss. Best game of the year for him.

Substitutes

John Stertzer - 5.5 I can't think of too much that stood out for Stertzer, but he was more of a close-out substitution so to that end, he did his job.
