RSL vs. LA Galaxy, Player of the Match: Justen Glad

Glad worked some magic on the goal line.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Los Angeles Galaxy Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Like every game played so far this year, the academy product played the entirety of the match. He completed 95% of his passes on 41 attempts, made 5 clearances, blocked one shot and stepped in breaking up a couple of passes. His goal line save in the 56th minute to stop a tap in from Zlatan was a huge moment. It’s extremely unfortunate that after that things would twist the other way and the Galaxy would get very hot, very fast.

Other Contenders

Marcelo Silva - made a crucial goal-saving tackle in the 29th minute, and another in the 37th ending the game with 4 clearances and 4 interceptions. If you take away the defensive collapse on part of the entirety of the team in the second half, it arguably could have been his best performance in the Claret and Cobalt so far.

Bofo Saucedo - while seemingly quiet, Bofo showed up significantly on the stat sheet winning 10 duels and drawing three fouls

Sunny - also had a solid game, not his best of the year, but 91% passing on 57 attempts and intercepting 4 different passes is not a poor performance.
