Real Salt Lake blanks Sounders

 

Kyle Beckerman scored a goal right before halftime and Robbie Findley added another immediately after it to lift Real Salt Lake to a 2-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night in Sandy, Utah. The win vaulted RSL (9-5-3) into first place into the Western Conference. Seattle (6-5-3) lost for just the second time in its past nine MLS matches. Beckerman put Salt Lake on the board in the 41st minute after cleaning up a deflected free kick by Javier Morales. The ball bounced off a defender and took a hop out to Beckerman on the right side of the box. He cleaned it up perfectly, sliding a half-volley under to the crossbar. Seattle had no shots on goal and did not create a single shot during the first half and only had two shots for the match. Findley gave RSL a two-goal lead in the 46th minute on a second-chance goal after his initial shot was saved. – AP
