Final Score: Real Salt Lake 1, Seattle 0
Sandy, UT (Sports Network) - Nick Rimando posted his fifth shutout of the year
and assisted on the lone goal of the game, leading Real Salt Lake to a 1-0 win
over Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday night at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Rimando was only tested once by Seattle - finishing with one save - but set up
the lone goal with a long pass from his own area to Findley just steps outside
the opposite box.
Findley got away from Seattle's Peter Vagenas and slotted past Kasey Keller to
the left side for his eighth goal of the season.
Real Salt Lake (7-8-5) continued to play well at home, winning for the sixth
time in 10 home games. RSL is 6-1-3 overall at Rio Tinto and closed the gap on
first-place Houston to nine points despite being sixth in the West.
Seattle, which lost 4-0 to San Jose last week, dropped its second straight and
slipped from second to fourth in the West. Los Angeles and Colorado passed the
Sounders on Saturday with wins over New England and Chivas USA, respectively.
