It’s been a while since Nick Rimando won the Save of the Week. In fact, not since Week 1 has the Real Salt Lake mainstay been top vote-getter, perhaps mirroring some of the club’s struggles this season.

But that’s all in the past. RSL seem to have found their form again, and a Rimando stop has been voted the Save of the Week for Week 24.

The award-winning save came in the 78th minute of RSL’s 1-0 win at Chivas. With his team down to 10 men, Rimando dove to his left to deny a rippling low shot from Juan Pablo Ángel.
