Sandy • Chandler Hoffman and Andrew Brody each scored as the Real Monarchs beat Portland Timbers 2, 2-0, on Saturday to earn its eighth consecutive victory, tying the USL record.

It is the seventh consecutive home win for the Monarchs (11-1-0, 33 points) dating to last season.

Real Salt Lake defender David Horst played 45 minutes in Saturday's win in a rehab start with the Monarchs, who took a 1-0 lead in the 41st minute when Sebastian Velasquz assisted on Brody's first goal of the season. Hoffman added his team-high eighth goal of the season in the 67th minute.

Goalkeeper Lalo Fernandez was not called upon to make a save as the Monarchs recorded its second straight shutout. The Monarchs next play at 7 p.m. on June 19 at home against Reno 1868 FC.
