Kreilach Waits Patiently Before Scoring On Powerful Shot

Jeff Allred, Deseret News

SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake doubled its lead on Orlando City SC with a goal in the 54th minute by forward Damir Kreilach.

The goal, which put RSL up 2-0, began on a long pass received by Jefferson Savarino in the attacking third. As the players raced down into position, Kreilach was trailing the play slightly, making himself wide open.

He received the pass from Savarino near the penalty kick marker and booted it near the center of the frame. Orlando City goalkeeper Brian Rowe never had a chance of stopping it.

The goal was Kreilach’s second of the season.

Coming into the match, RSL was looking to snap a four game losing streak. Thanks to Kreilach’s goal and a strike by Sam Johnson in the first half, RSL was in good shape to get back to winning ways.

The match between RSL and Orlando City SC can be streamed live on and the KSL TV app.
