Good Start Helps RSL Down Seattle 2-1
(KUTV) It took just eight minutes for RSL to get on the board against the Seattle Sounders Saturday night, propelling Real to a 2-1 victory in front of a sold out crowd at Rio Tinto Stadium.
RSL played without Alvaro Saborio, who had scored all of the club's goals coming into the match.
Still, it was Robbie Findley's goal in the eighth minute that gave RSL the early momentum. Then in the 35th minute when Luis Gil floated a ball past Seattle goalie Michael Gspruning the victory was in sight.
Seattle's Brad Evans did slip in a goal past Nick Rimando in the 57th minute, but that would end the scoring in this match. RSL improves to 2-2-1 on the season and will play its next match at Colorado on April 6.
