HARRISON, N.J. – After keeping the New York Red Bulls scoreless through 57 minutes, Real Salt Lake dug themselves a deep hole in just one minute.

RSL defender Marcelo Silva was on the wrong end of a cross by the Red Bulls when Silva tried to clear but slipped and the ball went behind him and in the back of the net past Nick Rimando.

The last time that RSL committed an own goal was in the season opener on the road against Dallas in 2018.

Less than one minute later, Daniel Royer gets the ball past Rimando to put New York up 2-0 on a fantastic through ball that put him one-on-one with the RSL goalkeeper for his third goal of the season.

In the 63rd minute, Michael Amir Murillo scored to put the Red Bulls to a commanding 3-0 lead.

Real is without Albert Rusnak, who suffered an ankle injury.

RSL is playing their second game in four days and are coming off a 2-1 loss to Montreal on Wednesday. Before that, the Claret and Cobalt was on a three-match winning streak. The club will have ten days off before facing LAFC in the fourth round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
