Seattle • How will Real Salt Lake replace Joao Plata and Alvaro Saborio? The club is in the midst of decrypting that equation.
With 12 of the team's 23 goals in 13 matches having come through the injured RSL starting forward tandem, arguably the most-difficult stretch of the season is becoming increasingly more difficult.
For the second-straight match, RSL was shut out after being shut out just once in its first 11 matches of 2014 as Plata (left hamstring) and Saborio (foot fracture) might not be teaming up top for the next three to four months. The responsibility rests on the trio of Olmes Garcia, Devon Sandoval and Robbie Findley all of whom have yet to tally a goal this season.
