SALT LAKE CITY – Just moments after Seattle had seized all momentum with a second half equalizer, Andrew Brody got loose for his second goal of the year.

Seattle hosted RSL at Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington on Sunday, August 14.

Brody answered an Albert Rusnák 62nd minute goal when he took a cross from Jefferson Savarino inside the six-yard box. Brody fired a right-footed shot  past a diving Stefan Frei to give RSL a 2-1 lead in the 64th minute.

In his second year of action with RSL, the 27-year old defender has two goals this season. Savarino picked up his third assist of the year on the play.

Seattle continues to threaten in the second half as RSL clings to a 2-1 advantage in the 72nd minute.

Rivalry Building?

Last season RSL unexpectedly eliminated Seattle from the playoffs in a penalty shootout in the opening round of the MLS playoffs. This was preceded by Freddy Juarez jumping ship as RSL manager to accept an assistant coaching opportunity in Seattle.

Then,  2021 RSL captain Albert Rusnák joined the Sounders in free agency after failing to come to terms with RSL. Kelyn Rowe, who spent the 2019 season with RSL, also now calls Seattle home.

Recently, Real Salt Lake has conceded multiple goals following lapses in concentration, much to the frustration of the team. Communication has been a big focus this week throughout training sessions as RSL attempts to combat a run of disappointing results.

Earlier this season, Real Salt Lake beat Seattle 1-0 following a Bobby Wood 46th-minute goal to pick up all three points. This weekend will act as a chance for Seattle to get its revenge and even the slate against RSL in 2022.
