LA Galaxy 0-1 Real Salt Lake: Rimando penalty save ensures win

Goalkeeper Nick Rimando helped earn new Real Salt Lake coach Jeff Cassar a big first win, saving a late Robbie Keane penalty to ensure a 1-0 victory away.

New Salt Lake signing Luke Mulholland thought he had scored with a 76th-minute poach from short range, but it was called back, much to RSL's chagrin and vocal protests.

The Claret-And-Cobalt wouldn't have long to wait, however. A slide-rule through ball from Kyle Beckerman sprung Joao Plata past the LA defense, and the Ecuadorian slotted home to give the visitors the 1-0 lead.

The Galaxy's chance would come in extra time, but the Galacticos were unable to capitalize. Striker Rob Friend theatrically drew a penalty off of Tony Beltran, but Robbie Keane -- fresh off a new contract -- found his shot pushed wide by Rimando.
