Sandy • Real Salt Lake had the best of a few scoring opportunities during a scoreless first half of Saturday's MLS contest with visiting Seattle.
Both teams, lately struggling for victories as play began at Rio Tinto Stadium, played cautiously for about a quarter of an hour. RSL has lost three straight while the Sounders are on an eight-game winless streak.
Then, in the span of five minutes, RSL's attack gained bite, including two headers by forward Alvaro Saborio. They had Sounders keeper Bryan Meredith beat, but were off target, sailing high and wide, respectively.
