Final Score: Real Salt Lake 2, Toronto 1
Sandy, UT (Sports Network) - Real Salt Lake battled to a 2-1 victory over
Toronto FC in Major League Soccer action at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday
With the loss, Toronto drops to 0-4 away from its home stadium while RSL
improves to 2-3-1 overall, ending a four-game winless streak.
Big defender Jamison Olave got credit for the game's first goal in the 14th
minute to give RSL the early advantage. Off a corner kick, Alvaro Saborio
headed toward goal and Olave out-muscled a defender to get his toe on the shot
to knock it across the goal line.
RSL's Andy Williams put his side up 2-0 just before the first-half break when
he received a ball at the top of the Toronto area and turned to fire into the
top right corner after no defender stepped up to challenge him.
Toronto pulled a goal back seconds before the final whistle when Dwayne De
Rosario converted a penalty kick thanks to a Kyle Beckerman handball in the
RSL will be gunning to get to .500 when it hosts the expansion Philadelphia
Union next Saturday, while Toronto (2-4-0) returns home to take on the Chicago
Fire the same day in its next MLS fixture.
