MLS Game Summary - Real Salt Lake at Chivas USA



(Saturday, June 16, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Real Salt Lake 3, Chivas USA 0

Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Fabian Espindola scored twice and Will Johnson added a third deep into second-half stoppage time to see Real Salt Lake claim a resounding 3-0 victory over Chivas USA at The Home Depot Center on Saturday.

Espindola's fifth and sixth goals of the season, which came on opposite sides of halftime, ensured that Real (10-3-2) stays atop the overall Major League Soccer table for another week as the Claret and Cobalt improve to an MLS-best 32 points.

Chivas (4-7-3) stays on 15 points through 14 games, losing its sixth home match from eight this term.

Alvaro Saborio thought he had given Real Salt Lake the lead in the 35th minute when he scored off a through ball from Chris Wingert, but he was ruled offside and the goal was disallowed.

The visitors were still able to get in front before the break as Kyle Beckerman delivered a perfect ball into the box for Espindola to guide a glancing header past Dan Kennedy in the 41st minute.

Nine minutes into the second half, Espindola completed his brace to give Real a two-goal lead. The Argentine latched on to a through ball from Ned Grabavoy, eased past Rauwshan McKenzie with a quick stepover and slipped a low shot past Kennedy.

Johnson chipped in with a third goal for the visitors, curling a shot from the top of the box into the far corner with the last kick of the ball.

Both sides return to the pitch on Wednesday as Real Salt Lake heads home to host the Los Angeles Galaxy at Rio Tinto Stadium while Chivas USA welcomes the Montreal Impact to The Home Depot Center.
