Recap: Real Salt Lake vs. Los Angeles


The Sports Network

Sandy, UT ( - Real Salt Lake and the Los Angeles Galaxy left Rio Tinto Stadium with an even split of the points on Saturday as the two sides played to a 1-1 draw.

Salt Lake opened its season with a 1-0 defeat of the Galaxy at the StubHub Center on March 8, but Los Angeles was unable to return the favor in Saturday's return match as the two sides shared the spoils.

Alvaro Saborio handed the home side the lead 19 minutes into the match. The Costa Rica international, left unmarked at the back post, collected Joao Plata's cross and tucked home his first goal of the season with a net finish.

Los Angeles battled for equalizer, which eventually came in the 34th minute from Robbie Keane. The Ireland international collected a pass from Juninho and went it alone, drifting inside the penalty area before uncorking a powerful shot past Nick Rimando at the near post.

Salt Lake remains unbeaten under new head coach Jeff Cassar, who has lifted the Claret and Cobalt to five points in his first three games in charge.

The Galaxy, still searching for their first win in league play, have had just two regular season matches due to CONCACAF Champions League play.
