Rimando wins Save of the Week
SANDY, Utah - Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando took home his seventh MLS Save of the Week award of the season on Friday.
Rimando's 49th minute stop on San Jose forward Chris Wondolowski in last Saturday's 2-1 loss to San Jose earned 48 percent of the weekly vote, bringing Rimando within one Save of the Week win of Portland backstop Donovan Ricketts, who leads the league with eight.
Real Salt Lake has 10 Save of the Week wins this year, with goalkeeper Jeff Attinella and defenders Nat Borchers and Chris Wingert all taking home the honor once. The Claret-and-Cobalt will return to action on Saturday, when it will take on Vancouver Whitecaps FC at 5:00 p.m. MT at BC Place on CW30.
