Albert Rusnak Slips Ball Past San Jose Keeper To Give RSL Early Lead
SANDY, Utah – Albert Rusnak and Real Salt Lake didn’t waste any time getting their first goal of the game against San Jose on Saturday afternoon.
In the ninth minute of the first half, Albert Rusnak got the ball that was headed out of the box by San Jose. Rusnak passed the ball to Damir Kreilach, who quickly got the ball back to Rusnak, who slipped the ball into the back of the net. It was basically the give-and-go in basketball.
It’s the ninth goal of the season and the 39th of Rusnak’s career in a Real Salt Lake uniform.
Kreilach recorded his ninth assist of the season and 23rd of his RSL career. RSL has a chance to clinch a playoff spot with a win over San Jose and a Minnesota United loss to Sporting Kansas City and a LAFC loss or tie with Vancouver.
Another option is a RSL win over San Jose and a LAFC loss or tie with Vancouver and a LA Galaxy loss or tie with Seattle.
The RSL match can be streamed on the KSL 5 TV app, KSL Sports app or KSLSports.com.
