Player Ratings: Vancouver 3-2 RSL

New, comments

RSL showed heart in the loss.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Vancouver Whitecaps FC Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 5.5 Three goals found their way past Rimando even though there was not a whole lot he could do about them.

Chris Wingert - 6.5 Wingert has made more starts this season than we were expecting, and he showed us why against Vancouver. He scored a goal and was solid on his side of the field.

David Horst - 5.5 Horst has filled in well during Silva’s absence. That said, three goals is a lot. None of them were solely Horst’s fault though and he did have some good individual plays.

Justen Glad - 7 Glad came up big multiple times. He singlehandedly prevented a couple Vancouver goals. Glad’s progress trajectory is well ahead of schedule.

Tony Beltran - 7 Tony was a clear leader on the field and scored a really nice goal, his first in MLS play. He looked determined to get a result, and even though it was not to be, he was at the front of the line of battle.nt of the

Kyle Beckerman - 5.5 Beckerman’s best work came on his tracking back to help the back line. He was great in help defending.

Stephen Sunday - 4.5 Sunny was not on top of his game in Vancouver. He gave the ball away softly and was not connecting passes like we are used to. He was, however, credited with an assist on the Wingert goal.

Albert Rusnak - 5 Rusnak couldn’t really get involved in an effective way. He was taken out of the game by Vancouver.

Jefferson Savarino - 6.5 Savarino gained a bit more traction as the game went on and was one of the few creators for RSL. He had a very nice assist to Beltran that gave RSL a fighting chance.

Yura Movsisyan - 5.5 Movsisyan got his first start in a while and while he played decently well, he didn’t take full advantage of the situation. He didn’t get a shot off and was not facilitating very many chances for those around him. It’s easy and maybe even a little unfair to compare him to Luis Silva, but it’s the most fascinating position battle on the team.

Joao Plata - 4 Plata couldn’t get much going for most of the match. It was probably the most silent game we’ve seen from him.

Substitutions

Luke Mulholland - 5 Luke came on and dug in as best he could, but was largely having a low-key game.

Luis Silva - 5.5 Silva didn’t have enough time to do too much, but got some connections up front that started giving RSL more scoring looks.

Brooks Lennon - 6 Lennon, once again, made the most of his time on the field and brought energy and scoring chances to the effort.
