MONTREAL – Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando kept the Montreal Impact off the scoreboard early with a huge quick-reaction save on a shot by Rudy Camacho.

The save came a minute or so after Camacho’s header hit the crossbar, denying the Impact of two chances to take the early advantage.

While Camacho’s first missed shot could be called a lucky break for RSL, the second attempt was all skill by Rimando.

Despite the numerous attempts that the Impact had in the first five minutes or so of the mid-week match, it wasn’t until the very end of the first half that Montreal found the back of the net.

For Rimando, it was possibly his biggest moment of the season. Prior to the start of the year, Rimando announced that this season would be his last after 19 years in Major League Soccer.

Rimando joined RSL in a trade with D.C. United in 2006 and has since gone on to rewrite the MLS record books. Known as “The Wall of the Wasatch,” Rimando is the league’s all-time leader in nearly every goalkeeping record, including shutouts, saves, wins and appearances.

The match between RSL and Montreal can be streamed live on or on the KSL TV app.
