RSL keeps Sounders in early funk

SANDY, Utah -- Robbie Findley and Luis Gil each scored first-half goals and Real Salt Lake claimed its first home victory of the 2013 season with a 2-1 win against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night.

Brad Evans scored for the Sounders (0-3-1), who remain winless a month into the 2013 season.

RSL (2-2-1) played without leading scorer Alvaro Saborio, who injured his knee while playing for Costa Rica this week.

Findley made up for Saborio's absence with a big first-half goal. He collected a cleared ball and drilled a left-footer from the right side of the box to put RSL up 1-0 in the eighth minute.

It snapped a 408-minute scoreless streak for the team against Seattle going back to last season. Findley left the game a few minutes after his goal with a left adductor strain and did not return.

His absence did not slow Salt Lake.

Gil added to the RSL tally in the 35th minute. Sebastian Velasquez sent a corner kick into Ned Grabavoy and he flicked the ball to Gil on the right side of the box. Gil headed the ball home into the left corner to make it 2-0.

RSL nearly tacked on a third goal before halftime. Joao Plata broke free in the initial minute of first-half stoppage time. Plata fired off a right-footer while running down the center of the box. Seattle goalkeeper Michael Gspurning parried the ball away at the right post.

Salt Lake had nine shots on goal before halftime, while limiting the Sounders to just two shots in the half.

The Sounders finally got on the board in the 57th minute, when Evans ricocheted a left-footed shot off the right post to make it 2-1.
