MLS Game Summary - Portland at Real Salt Lake



(Saturday, April 19, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Real Salt Lake 1, Portland 0

Sandy, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - A 78th-minute goal from Ned Grabavoy and some late goalkeeping heroics from Nick Rimando helped Real Salt Lake to a 1-0 win over the Portland Timbers at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday.

Salt Lake is now unbeaten in its first seven games this season, while Portland is still in search of its first victory through seven matches after finishing on top of the Western Conference last term.

Rimando had a big hand in RSL claiming three points on Saturday as he came up with a nice stop on Darlington Nagbe in the 19th minute to keep out the best chance of the first half.

Things picked up after the break and Portland nearly found the opener in the 58th when Maximiliano Urruti cut inside from the left wing and hammered a shot off the crossbar.

The home side was next to go close in the 73rd when Chris Wingert picked out Javier Morales with a pass that the midfielder drilled off the post.

But Grabavoy broke the deadlock 12 minutes from time as he took a pass 30 yards from goal and dribbled to the edge of the penalty area before driving a left-footed shot inside the right post that was just beyond the reach of goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

The Timbers pressed hard for an equalizer late in the match, but Rimando made two huge saves to preserve the win, first denying Alvas Powell with a kick save before tipping a shot from Gaston Fernandez past the post as it was headed for the top corner.
