New, 7 comments

RSL came out ahead in a back and forth game.

MLS: FC Dallas at Real Salt Lake Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Putna - 5 Putna was a bit more of a stable presence than what we saw in the past couple of games, but ended the match without a single save.

Aaron Herrera - 6.5 It was a welcome sight to see Herrera back in the starting XI for RSL. He assisted Glad on the goal and showed some real skill to keep the ball moving in the right spots.

Justen Glad - 6.5 Glad got RSL back in the game with his deft run into the box to get his head on the ball and put it in the net. His defense was overall good, but he probably could have pressured Ferreira a bit more on Dallas’ final goal.

Marcelo Silva - 4 Silva gave up the ball way too easily on Dallas’ first goal and seemed to be on shaky ground off and on through the rest of the game.

Noah Powder - 6 Powder got another opportunity in the starting lineup and took full advantage this time. He was really effective going forward and gave RSL a new look.

Everton Luiz - 5.5 Everton had some good moments and put in a tough shift. He seemed to be carrying a lot of the load in the middle of the field and tracking back a ton.

Pablo Ruiz- 5 Pablo was decent on the night, but did not gain control of the midfield the way we need him to.

Damir Kreilach - 6 Kreilach put pressure on Dallas and had a few good looks at the goal. Unfortunately, none of them ended up in the net.

Albert Rusnak - 7 Rusnak gave RSL the insurance goal they needed to get the full three points and made things difficult for the Dallas defense, particularly in the second half.

Jonathan Menendez - 7.5 Menendez put his skill checks on full display and ended up with a goal and an assist. He showed us how technical he is on the ball and it paid off.

Rubio Rubin - 6 Rubin had some beautiful combination play in front of the goal and created space for his teammates to exploit. No goal, but a nice game.
