New, 1 comment

RSL topped one of the East’s best with three different goal-scorers.

MLS: Toronto FC at Real Salt Lake Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando- 6.5 Nick stepped back into the starting XI and came up with three saves, all of which were tough. Without those saves, RSL may very well have ended up with point rather than three.

Aaron Herrera - 6 A solld game from Herrera helping keep Toronto off the board.

Justen Glad - 5.5 Glad had a good game for the most part except for a poor giveaway toward the end that gave Toronto a good look.

Nedum Onuoha - 6 Nedum played with a calm confidence in the back and thwarted anything that came his way.

Donny Toia - 6.5 Toia put in some serious work on the night hand looked determined to get the win. He was credited with an assist on the Bofo goal even though Bofo did much of the work to create his shot.

Nick Besler - 6 Besler quietly held the fort down once again with Beckerman being out.

Corey Baird - 6 Baird got into a lot of dangerous positions with the ball but could not find a way to get the ball in the back of the net.

Albert Rusnak - 6 Rusnak had some smart and creative moments in this game. Unfortunately, none of them led directly to a goal.

Damir Kreilach - 6.5 Kreilach showed that he can score a scrappy goal in tight space opening up the lead for RSL. His also covered a lot of ground in the midfield.

Bofo Saucedo - 8 Bofo had one of the best goals from RSL in a long while. He lit a rocket from distance and it blew up in the goal. He also picked up a nice assist finding Savarino for RSL’s dagger goal. Bofo was a hair away from having another goal that ended up off the post.

Jefferson Savarino - 7 Savarino was really dangerous on the night after not initially being in the starting lineup. He had a nice skill check goal and a few of other close shots.

Substitutes

Joao Plata - 5.5 Plata came on and helped RSL preserve the full three points with his fresh legs putting more pressure on Toronto.

Everton Luiz - 5.5 It was good to see Everton back on the field. He shored up the defense in the final minutes of the game and choked off any life Toronto still had.
