VANCOUVER, B.C. – Real Salt Lake forward Damir Kreilach scored an easy goal in the first half to give RSL a 1-0 lead against the Vancouver Whitecaps in the regular season finale.

The goal came in the 29th minute when forward Corey Baird was given the ball on the left side of the field from midfielder Kyle Beckerman, who served the ball deep into the box and Kreilach put his head on in and into the back of the net.

It’s the sixth goal of the season for Kreilach and the Baird picked up his fourth assist in 2019.
