SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake goalkeeper David Ochoa and Damir Kreilach have been named to the week 28 edition of the MLS Team of the Week.

Ochoa, 20, made four saves on the evening. All of which came during crucial moments of the game. Most notably, Ochoa denied LA Galaxy star striker Chicharito on a handful of occasions, including denying the Mexican international star with his right leg in a one-on-one encounter.

Without Ochoa, Real Salt Lake may well have found themselves down by a few goals. His ability to keep Real Salt Lake in the contest ultimately helped Real Salt Lake steal all three points at home following a marvelous left-footed volley by Anderson Julio in the 95th minute.

Furthermore, Damir Kreilach was also named to the bench following his late first-half goal that gave Real Salt Lake the lead with seconds left in the first half.

It was Kreilach’s 12th goal of the year which leads all Real Salt Lake players substantially. Rubio Rubin, Anderson Julio, and Albert Rusnák have all scored seven goals, which is good enough for second-most only behind Kreilach.

With the most recent win, Real Salt Lake climbed the Western Conference to fifth place after starting the evening in seventh. Real Salt Lake finds themselves just four points behind the Portland Timbers who currently occupy fourth place in the West.

Next Match

Real Salt Lake will travel to Austin to take on the MLS newcomers for the first time at Q2 stadium.

The fixture is scheduled to kickoff at 1:30 p.m. and can be streamed for free via the KSL Sports & KSL 5 TV apps or on KSL Sports dot com.
