MLS Game Summary - Real Salt Lake at Vancouver



(Saturday, Aug. 11, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Vancouver 2, Real Salt Lake 1

Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - Vancouver Whitecaps FC exacted some revenge on Saturday, defeating Real Salt Lake 2-1 at BC Place.

Salt Lake claimed a 2-1 over Vancouver at Rio Tinto Stadium in the Whitecaps' last outing, but that result was reversed this time around as Camilo Sanvezzo and Dane Richards scored eight minutes apart in the second half to ensure three points for the Canadian club. Nat Borchers tacked on a late consolation goal for the visitors.

Real Salt Lake came closest to breaking the deadlock in the opening period when a cross from Javier Morales in the 25th minute was met by Alvaro Saborio, but his header grazed the near post before the Whitecaps quickly cleared their lines.

The Claret and Cobalt were left to rue that miss as Vancouver went in front after the restart.

Salt Lake made a hash of a cross played into the box in the 58th minute and Camilo jumped on the loose ball, firing a left-footed shot across goal and just inside the far post.

Vancouver's lead was doubled eight minutes later when Darren Mattocks and Camilo combined to work the ball from the left corner of the box to Richards on the right. The Jamaican international used his defender as a screen to curl a brilliant effort into the upper corner at the near post, giving goalkeeper Nick Rimando little chance at a save.

Borchers denied the 'Caps a clean sheet by heading home a consolation goal off of a cross from Paulo Jr. two minutes into stoppage time.

Real Salt Lake (13-9-3) misses out on the chance to go top of the West as it will remain in second place for another week with 42 points on the season. The club returns to action August 18 with a home match against FC Dallas.

Vancouver (10-7-7) improves to 37 points on the season to retain fourth place in the West. The 'Caps will welcome Dallas to BC Place on Wednesday for another crucial Western Conference tilt on short rest.
