Player Ratings: Seattle 2-0 RSL

RSL came up empty handed in Seattle.

MLS: MLS Cup Conference Semifinals-Real Salt Lake at Seattle Sounders FC Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 7 Rimando came up big a lot of times, but none bigger than in the 61st minute with a quick reaction save to tap the ball on top of the net.

Aaron Herrera - 6 Herrera had a pretty quiet game on the offensive side of the ball, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. He filled his role.

Nedum Onuoha - 6.5 Nedum had a solid, physical game. He fouled when he needed to and was where he needed to be.

Justen Glad - 6.5 Glad started this game because of his speed, and it paid off. He did as much as anyone to keep Seattle away from the goal and from having many clear chances.

Donny Toia - 5.5 Toia had a few cheap giveaways that gave Seattle half breakaways, but gave a strong effort.

Everton Luiz - 7 Everton did what Everton does and was all over the place cleaning things up and slowing down the opposition. He was great for 80 minutes. Unfortunately, he made a really dangerous tackle with about 10 minutes left and took away any possibility of RSL coming back.

Kyle Beckerman - 5.5 He cleared plenty of dangerous balls out of the box, but lost the battle with Svensson to put Seattle up.

Damir Kreilach - 5 Damir was not as effective in Seattle as we needed him to be. He started to threaten a little bit towards the last 20 minutes of the game, but was then subbed off. He looked like he had tired legs.

Albert Rusnak - 6 Rusnak had some good bouts of possession, but did not threaten to score much more than on a set piece early in the first half.

Jefferson Savarino - 6 Savarino was hungry to score and it showed especially in the first half. His shots did not go the way he wanted and he was angry at himself.

Corey Baird - 5.5 Baird put in a ton of work on defense, but was unable to get too much going on offense.

Substitutes:

Joao Plata - 5.5 He didn’t have quite the effect that he had when he came on against Portland, but things were already pretty well out of reach.

Sam Johnson - 5.5 Johnson did not really get enough time or touches to get into rhythm.

Bofo Saucedo - N/A
