Final Score: Real Salt Lake 5, New England 0
Sandy, UT (Sports Network) - Real Salt Lake extended its home winning streak
to 18 games with a 5-0 shellacking of the New England Revolution in Major
League Soccer action on Friday night.
Alvaro Saborio scored two goals, and Fabian Espindola, Jamison Olave and
Robbie Findley each scored one to pace the offense.
Espindola opened the scoring in the 27th minute when he ran onto a ball played
from the back from Robbie Russell, took a touch and fired a shot into the
right corner for his fourth goal of the season.
RSL doubled its advantage in first-half stoppage time when Javier Morales
curled a free kick from just outside of the right side of the Revs penalty
area to defender Jamison Olave, who headed home.
Saborio scored two goals inside an hour to open the second half and put the
game out of reach. The first was a one-time shot of another Russell ball from
in tight, while the second was a nifty back-heel, also from in tight.
Findley closed out the scoring five minutes from time when he added his second
goal of the season.
The Revs (3-9-2) have now lost three straight and seven of their last 11,
while being shut out in seven of those.
RSL (8-3-3), on the other hand, is unbeaten in nine games overall to go along
with its franchise record home winning streak.
For New England, life doesn't get any easier next week as it hosts league
leaders the Los Angeles Galaxy on July 10, while RSL is at Chicago on Thursday
in its next league fixture.
