MLS: FC Dallas at Real Salt Lake Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 6.5 A shutout and two saves is a pretty good night for Rimando. Those two saves weren’t particularly easy either.

Tony Beltran - 7.5 Nobody wanted this game more than Tony and he showed it with his aggressiveness and work rate. He was one of the best players on the field. He didn’t get beat once that I can remember.

Justen Glad - 7 Glad was once again solid, not only in preventing goals but with his touch on the ball.

Jamison Olave - 6.5 Olave made some very timely steps and was definitely part of the shutout.

Demar Phillips - 6 Phillips was fun to watch with his recover speed. He nearly had a goal were it not for the former RSL keeper, Seitz.

Luke Mulholland - 7 Mulholland had a very impressive first half. He broke up some plays just when we all thought it was a lost cause and sacrificed his body doing so.

Kyle Beckerman - 5.5 Beckerman’s short passes were on point. His over the top passes were hit or miss, but geneerally good.

Javier Morales - 4.5 I didn’t see much out of Morales in this game that made me think he was the typical creator we know him to be. His passes seemed to be intercepted a little too often even when he saw the runs his teammates were making.

Juan Manuel Martinez - 5 Burrito, like Morales, had good ideas but his passes weren’t quite sharp enough to pull them off. He put in a full night’s work on defense though.

Jordan Allen - 6 Allen’s passes weren’t as sharp as we needed them to be but he created two chances on his own that very likely were the best RSL chances of the night. His footwork is fun to watch.

Olmes Garcia - 4 As we have become accustomed to, Garcia shows flashes of brilliance and then doesn’t have the skill to finish what he started. He can beat defenders a few times a game, but then does little with it.

Substitutes

Joao Plata - 5 Plata didn’t have a ton of time to get in a rhythm, but he had a great shot that nearly won the game for RSL.
