Rusnak Scores On Penalty Kick To Take 1-0 Lead On Rapids
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – After video review on a foul drawn by Real Salt Lake’s Bofo Saucedo, the visitors were awarded a penalty kick which was buried by Albert Rusnak.
In the 22nd minute, while attacking on the right side of the box, Saucedo was tripped up by Colorado’s Sebastian Anderson. Following a video review on the play, RSL was given a penalty kick, taken by the strong-footed Albert Rusnak.
Rusnak shot a strong ball to the left side of the net. Colorado goalkeeper Tim Howard guessed correctly on the kick and may have gotten a hand on the ball, but the shot was too strong and Rusnak was able to bury the attempt.
In games when Rusnak scores a goal, RSL is 15-2-1 in his three-year career with RSL.
RSL came into the match looking to get back on track after losing at home to Portland last week. Colorado has yet to win a game this season.
