Player Ratings: San Jose 2-1 RSL

New, 4 comments

RSL started great but slowed down as time went on.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at San Jose Earthquakes Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 5 Rimando had a good save or two and had good positioning for most of the night, but was a tad out of position on the second San Jose goal.

Danilo Acosta - 6 Acosta won the ball for RSL a handful of times and looked like he was the much better player in his match ups at times.

Aaron Maund - 4 Maund got beat by speedier players and got exposed for it a few times. One of those times led to a goal.

Justen Glad - 6.5 Glad met every challenge head on and was RSL’s best player on the night.

Chris Wingert - 5 Wingert played pretty well at times but was unable to clear the ball a few times when things got scary for RSL.

Luke Mulholland - 4.5 Luke had some pretty big shoes to fill with Beckerman not present in the midfield. He wasn’t really able to control the area.

Jefferson Savarino - 4.5 Savarino didn’t have quite the same game he had against Minnesota. He simply didn’t have much of an effect on the game.

Brooks Lennon - 5.5 Lennon’s body language is showing that he wants the ball more, and you can’t really blame him. He showed a lot of heart in this game even though he wasn’t really able to produce.

Yura Movsisyan - 5 Yura had a couple of good looks that he probably wishes he could have again.

Joao Plata - 5.5 Plata had a few too many heavy touches and ended up giving the ball away. However, he probably had RSL’s best shot on the night when he hit the post on a free kick.

Luis Silva - 5 Silva started up top and then got moved to the midfield. He had a difficult time getting into rhythm.

Substitutions

Bofo Saucedo - 6.5 Bofo wanted to get the ball forward, maybe a bit too much as he was trying to get around multiple defenders rather than making a simple pass. He figured that out in the last minute though as he found Jose Hernandez and notched an assist.

Jose Hernandez - 6.5 Hernandez was a quiet substitution until he scored a goal at the death. It was a very composed finish and surely will boost his confidence when he steps on the field next time.
