SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake jumped out to a big lead when Albert Rusnak scored a goal to give RSL a 3-0 advantage over the Philadelphia Union.

The goal came in the 81st minute as Damir Kreilach attempted to play the ball from the right side into the box but the Union stole the pass.

Jefferson Savarino stole the ball from behind the defender and played it to Albert Rusnak with a beautiful behind pass.

Rusnak fired the ball into the back of the net past Union goalkeeper Andre Blake.

Rusnak scored his seventh goal of the season and is just one behind Sam Johnson to lead the club.

Savarino picked up his second assist of the season.

RSL is hoping to bounce back from a disappointing loss last week on the road against the San Jose Earthquakes, when they gave up a goal in the final moments of the match to lose 1-0.

The Union hold a six point lead over D.C. United for the top spot on the Eastern Conference table.

The Real Salt Lake match can be streamed on KSLSports.com and the KSL TV app.
