Rusnak, Rimando help Real Salt Lake beat Red Bulls 1-0
SANDY, Utah (AP) --- Albert Rusnak scored on a penalty kick in the opening
minutes and Nick Rimando had his MLS-leading 138th career shutout to help Real
Salt Lake beat the New York Red Bulls 1-0 on Saturday night in the snow.
David Horst drew a foul, conceded by Carlos Rivas, just inside the penalty area
and Rusnak converted from the spot to give Real Salt Lake (1-1-1) the lead in
the fourth minute.
Rimando, a five-time MLS All-Star, finished with four saves, including a pair
of spectacular diving stops. The 38-year old made a diving one-handed stop of a
half-volley by Vincent Bezecourt in the 26th and another diving save in the
54th minute, turning away Bezecourt's header from just outside the 6-yard box.
The Red Bulls (1-1-0) are winless, including two losses, in their last three
games against RSL.
Chris Wingert, who played 14 MLS seasons and was a starter for Real Salt Lake's
2009 MLS Cup championship team, was honored at halftime. The defender, who
played 10 seasons for RSL, announced his retirement on Feb. 19.
