Player Ratings: RSL 1-0 Seattle

RSL showed up against the league’s best.

MLS: Seattle Sounders FC at Real Salt Lake Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

David Ochoa - 6 It’s pretty hard to argue with a shutout against Seattle. Ochoa was alert and made saves when needed.

Toni Datkovic - 5.5 Toni played a solid game in a modified role. He did not stand out, but he did what was needed of him.

Erik Holt - 6 Holt played to his strengths and got his first win as a starter. It was very likely his best game for RSL from the starting whistle to the end.

Justen Glad - 6 Glad is in a great run of form playing a leading role in the back and making some key steps at key times.

Aaron Herrera - 7.5 Herrera got everything on a ball that came his way in the second half and did not miss by much. He later did a couple of cutbacks to get open and find Damir far post for what turned out to be the winning goal.

Everton Luiz - 6 Everton had a tidy game and stayed within himself to do his job and do it well.

Pablo Ruiz 6.5 Ruiz made the midfield him, which we haven’t seen from him or RSL in too long. Ruiz thrived against Seattle as if he had something to prove.

Damir Kreilach - 7.5 Damir got his 10th goal of the season for RSL in a critical game for playoff positioning. He has a knack for showing up when RSL needs it and this game was no exception.

Albert Rusnak - 6.5 Rusnak was a great facilitator in this match. He connected well in front of goal and was shocked like the rest of us that he did not end up with a goal after some great combination play.

Justin Meram - 6 Meram did a great job of not holding on to the ball for too long and seeing the opportunities to keep building momentum.

Rubio Rubin - 6 Rubin had a few fantastic individual efforts that created decent or even good chances in really tight space.

Substitutes

Noah Powder - 5.5 Powoder did not get a shot off, but he did get involved and help keep a clean sheet.

Anderson Julio - 6 Julio came on as a sub and really alleviated pressure on RSL, stretching the field and getting some good looks.
