MLS Game Summary - Colorado at Real Salt Lake



(Saturday, March 16, 2013)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Colorado 1, Real Salt Lake 1

Sandy, UT (Sports Network) - Alvaro Sabario's strike 10 minutes from time salvaged a point for Real Salt Lake in a 1-1 draw with the Colorado Rapids on Saturday at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Both sides had ample scoring opportunities in the first half, but it was the visitors who struck first in the 37th minute through rookie forward Deshorn Brown.

Brown controlled a pass on the right flank, took a few touches to his left and ripped a low, right-footed shot into the far corner past Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando for the 1-0 advantage.

After the break, it was the hosts that were on the front foot and Saborio pulled his side level in the 80th minute when he picked off a poor clearing attempt from Colorado in the box and fired a right-footed strike past Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin.

Real Salt Lake pushed for a winner over the final 10 minutes and had a few fantastic opportunities, but a deciding goal never materialized and the teams settled for a point apiece in the first edition of the Rocky Mountain Cup this season.

Salt Lake is an impressive 31-5-6 all-time when Saborio finds the back of the net.

The result gives Colorado its first point of the season and it will look for a victory next week against Los Angeles, while Real Salt Lake travels to Texas to face FC Dallas.
