Player ratings: RSL 1:4 Montreal Impact

New, 4 comments

Sandoval, Gil, and Allen showed well. The others left a lot to be desired.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 5 This was one of the few times I have ever seen Nick Rimando be out of position giving the opposition the opportunity to flick the ball over him for a goal. It's not that he was horrible on the night, but at the end of the day he made a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes and four goals did get past him. You could make an argument that he intimidated Ignacio Piatti enough to hit the post. That would be his bright spot.

Demar Phillips - 5 Whether fair or unfair, RSL gives up a lot more goals when Phillips is in the lineup so far in 2015. He hasn't provided the quality service we were expecting him to provide on a consistent basis either. Nothing great against Montreal.

Elias Vasquez - 4 Vasquez committed another penalty making two games in a row for the youngster. That is forgivable with his lack of experience, but he was caught out of shape a few times along with many others.

Jamison Olave - 4.5 Olave had to recover more than he should have to in a given game. The shape was bad and he got beat because of it.

Tony Beltran - 4 Tony got beat a couple times at critical moments which lead to Impact goals. He was not good enough on the night.

Kyle Beckerman - 5 This was probably the first time I can remember Beckerman being so out of shape in his defensive midfielder role. I consider Kyle Beckerman to be the key player for RSL and if he is off, the team is likely to be off as well.

Jordan Allen - 6.5 Jordan Allen led the team in key passes leading to shots. He was one of the few players on the field for RSL that was doing things well.

Luke Mulholland - 5 As with many others, Mulholland looked out of sorts, particularly when it came to positioning. He was credited with an assist on the Devon Sandoval goal, however.

Luis Gil - 6.5 Gil probably could have been a bit more aggressive at times with his passing, but he did have a pretty good night with an assist to give RSL their lone goal and another shot that very well could have gone in.

Alvaro Saborio - 4.5 Quiet night from Sabo besides losing his mark on the set piece and a few missed opportunities. More bad than good.

Devon Sandoval - 7.5 Sandoval was the man of the match with his tenacity and that incredibly difficult goal.

Substitutes

Sebastian Saucedo - 5.5 Saucedo had the most minutes in MLS play against Montreal to have an impact. He did not exactly make his mark but the game was pretty well over by the time he got on.

Olmes Garcia - 5 Garcia continues to rely to heavily on his speed to create something by kicking the ball up the sideline and starting a foot race. It rarely if ever works and it did not work against Montreal.

John Stertzer - N/A
