MLS Game Summary - Real Salt Lake at Vancouver|
(Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011)
From The Sports Network
Final Score: Vancouver 3, Real Salt Lake 0
Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - Real Salt Lake suffered its fourth successive
defeat on Thursday, losing 3-0 to Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place behind
two successful penalty kicks from Camilo.
The Brazilian converted his first spot kick shortly before halftime after Real
Salt Lake's Collen Warner was sent off for handling the ball inside his own
Camilo then tallied his 11th goal of the campaign in the 53rd minute when he
scored after another handball inside the box, this time from RSL's Chris
Nizar Khalfan capped the scoring a few minutes from time for Vancouver, which
snaps a three-game losing skid.
Neither side created any real scoring chances in the first 40 minutes, but the
match changed dramatically shortly before the break when Jay DeMerit's header
was kept out of the Salt Lake net by the arm of Warner.
This earned the RSL man a red card and allowed Camilo to send goalkeeper Nick
Rimando the wrong way from the spot.
The visitors had an uphill climb in the second half as they were down a goal
and down a man, and it took Vancouver only eight minutes to double its lead.
A deflected pass struck the arm of Schuler inside his own area and referee
Chris Penso pointed to the spot, although the call was a bit harsh.
Rimando got a hand to Camilo's penalty kick, but he couldn't keep it from
sneaking inside the right post, handing the hosts a 2-0 lead.
Camilo came within inches of completing his hat trick on the hour mark with a
curling effort that hit the side netting from 20 yards.
Vancouver was easily seeing out the final 30 minutes of the match, but Khalfan
added a third goal with a nice strike from 20 yards in the 88th minute.
