MLS Wrap: End of an era looms for Real Salt Lake

Real Salt Lake turned a strong first half into a win as the club topped the Seattle Sounders 2-1 on Saturday.

Robbie Findley scrambled home his first goal of the season just eight minutes into the match to give RSL an early lead. A long throw took a couple of awkward bounces before the U.S. international forward managed to poke it home with a heads-up touch after having his initial shot saved.

Findley was subbed off just four minutes later due to an injury.

Luis Gil made it 2-0 in the 35th minute. A well-worked corner started with a ball coming into the box low. Ned Grabavoy clipped it up from the line for the USA U-20 star to head into the far corner.

Brad Evans pulled one back for Seattle in the second half. Salt Lake failed to deal with a cross into the box on the first touch and Evans pounced, knocking home his shot off the inside of the post, but RSL hung on for all three points.
