Saborio Notches Hat Trick, RSL Dominates Chivas 4-0
(KUTV) Real Salt Lake is tied for second place in the West with four games left, so every game is important now or at least that's the message Alvaro Saborio got Saturday night before he faced Chivas USA.
Saborio recorded a hat trick and RSL dominated Chivas in a 4-0 victory. Off the header from Fabian Espindola, Saborio was there for a tap in goal and the opening score of the match.
Then in the 12th minute Saborio collected his second goal of the night and his 16th of the year. RSL lead 2-0 at the half. Chivas never threatened in the second half and the only drama that remained, was to see if Saborio could get the trifecta in goals.
He didn't disappoint. In the 65th minute, and off the Dan Kennedy block of Will Johnson, Saborio was was there to clean up--knocking home his third goal of the night. The shot hit the crossbar and went in just like it was supposed to. Paulo Jr. scored in the 80tth minute to complete the 4-zip blowout.
