SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake midfielder/forward Damir Kreilach scored the first goal of the night for RSL in their road clash with the Portland Timbers.

In the 41st minute, the ball was served into the box when a Portland defender headed the ball towards the keeper. The keeper couldn’t corral the ball, allowing Damir Kreilach to tap the ball into the back of the net.

That cut Portland’s lead to 2-1 in the first half. It’s the 11th goal of the season for the MLS All-Star.

Portland scored their first goal of the match in the 27th minute when Felipe Mora found the back of the net. Just nine minutes later in the 36th minute, Dairon Asprilla scored to put the Timbers up 2-0. RSL will look to even the match in the second half.

The Claret and Cobalt will return to Rio Tinto Stadium on Wednesday, September 29 against the LA Galaxy. First kick is at 7:30 p.m. MDT and will be streamed on KSLSports.com, the KSL TV app and the KSL Sports app.
