SEATTLE, Wash. – With Real Salt Lake trailing the Seattle Sounders 1-0, RSL’s Jefferson Savarino nearly brought the score even with a powerful shot that clanked off the post.

RSL was in hole early after Seattle’s Nico Lodeiro scored in the 15th minute to give the Sounders an early advantage.

Playing from behind for the rest of the game, RSL got its best chance to tying up the score in the second half on Savarino’s boot that was just inches from hitting the twine.

So far this season, RSL has only scored five goals while allowing 13. After Seattle goal stood its ground and gave the Sounders the victory, RSL’s record sat at 1-4-1.

RSL will return home to host Orlando City SC next Saturday at 7 p.m. The game will be streamed live on and the KSL TV app.
