Real Salt Lake 3-0 New York Red Bulls: RSL lights up New York

George Frey

Kyle Beckerman assisted twice and Luis Gil scored his first MLS goal as RSL trounced the visiting New York Red Bulls.

Real Salt Lake made sure it didn't lose three on the trot and did so in emphatic fashion. A 3-0 result handily dispatched the visiting New York Red Bulls, who haven't won in five straight MLS matches.

Salt Lake conceded twice in the opening 10 minutes in the 2-0 loss to the Columbus Crew, but this time got off to the faster start. A Kyle Beckerman corner was nodded home by Nat Borchers in the 13th minute to open the scoring.

Then, with the sides preparing to head into the break, 17-year-old Luis Gil scored his first MLS goal to double the lead. Beckerman assisted again.

Frank Rost picked up a quad injury and was replaced by Bouna Coundoul at halftime, but the Senegalese 'keeper wasn't spared either. Alvaro Saborio thwacked a penalty past him in the 76th minute after Roy Miller handled in the area.
