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.
