Rimando wins 5th Save of the Week nod for reaction stop
Nick Rimando just keeps racking up the awards, although surely the Real Salt Lake netminder would be happier with the points.
RSL may have fallen 1-0 to Houston a week ago Thursday, but still Rimando won his fifth Save of the Week award of the 2012 campaign, with fans electing his reaction save against the Houston Dynamo as the best of Week 27.
After Corey Ashe found Will Bruin's head on the back post, Rimando does what he does best, making himself big and reaching out to palm the ball away while a frustrated Bruin looked on. Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall finished second, with Donovan Ricketts, Dan Kennedy and Matt Pickens filling out the rest of the field.
