Save of the Week: Real Salt Lake's Nick Rimando gets on the board with Week 7 honor

Who would've thought Real Salt Lake defender Nat Borchers would have a Save of the Week award before RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando?

After winning the award seven times in 2012, Rimando is finally on the board in 2013, capturing the Week 7 honor for his tip of a YP Lee blast that was headed for the top corner.

It will be a welcome triumph for Rimando, who had to settle for second place last week behind Rocky Mountain Cup rival goalkeeper Clint Irwin from Colorado.

One of the best shot-stoppers in the league, the USMNT 'keeper is also the reigning Save of the Year winner.
