The Force Was Strong For RSL On Star Wars Night
(KUTV) Real Salt Lake evened their record at 4-4-2 with a 2-0 win at home over Vancouver. Joao Plata had a pair of assists and Nick Rimando also had an assist in the victory.
The first goal came after Vancouver over hit a free kick. While the Whitecaps walked back on defense, Rimando crushed the goal kick down the right side. Plata ran the ball down at the top of the 18 yard box and crossed it to Luis Gil who headed it off the post and in.
The second came off ofa sweet sequence as Javier Morales, Sebastian Velasquez and Plata combined to slice thru the Vancouver defense. Plata found Morales right in front of the goal and Whitecaps GK Joe Cannon was helpless.
Watch the highlights here. RSL is at New England Wednesday and Montreal Saturday.
