Rimando wins Save of the Week

RSL goalie nabs 6th weekly honor of 2012 as team sweeps awards

Real Salt Lake just keeps raking in the awards. 

About an hour after Claret-and-Cobalt midfielder Javier Morales won MLS Goal of the Week for a stunning free kick, it was announced that RSL goalie Nick Rimando nabbed MLS Save of the Week for a stunning stop in the team's 2-1 win over Portland last Saturday. 

Rimando won the weekly award - his league high sixth of the season - for a fantastic reaction stop on a header from Timbers' midfielder Rodney Wallace in the 21st minute. The save - which saw Rimando block Wallace's strong eight-yard header with an outstretched left arm - easily won the fan vote, topping a stop from Vancouver 'keeper Brad Knighton by over 30 percent.
