SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake doubled their lead against the Colorado Rapids in the 56th minute when Rubio Rubin slotted home a beautiful one-touch finish following an assist from Damir Kreilach.

The assist was just as special as the goal as Kreilach weighted the pass perfectly in behind the Rapids backline and onto the gliding feet of Rubin who opted to hit the shot with his first touch.

Real Salt Lake opened the scoring in the 13th minute when Kreilach got on the end of an Aaron Herrera cross. Kreilach’s opening goal was the fifth consecutive match that he has scored in, while Rubin scored his first goal since September 15th when he notched a brace in a 4-3 win over San Jose.

With a win, Real Salt Lake will win the Rocky Mountain Cup and further cement their playoff position with just five games remaining on the regular season. However, the gap between Real Salt Lake and eighth-placed LAFC is just five points.

Real Salt Lake and Colorado Rapids are streaming live on the KSL Sports & KSL 5 TV apps or o KSL Sports dot com.
