Real Salt Lake 1-0 D.C. United: Will Johnson gets game winner

A single goal was all that RSL needed to put away D.C. United's challenge in Saturday night's lightning-delayed match.

Will Johnson stuck his nose in to head home the game's only goal as Real Salt Lake took a 1-0 win over D.C. United on Saturday night.

After a tightly contested first half saw the game go to the break with no goals, it took Johnson only a couple of minutes to give his side the lead in the second half.

Paulo Jr.'s cross took a deflection and hung just in front of the goal, where the Canadian went in fearlessly to head home the game winner.
