Robbie Findley one goal and set up another as Real Salt Lake downed the Portland Timbers 4-2 in the first leg of the Major League Soccer Western Conference finals on Sunday.

Chris Schuler, Devon Sandoval and Javier Morales also scored for Salt Lake, which will take a two-goal advantage into the second leg of the series on Nov. 24th. Salt Lake scored three goals in a 15- minute stretch starting with Schuler's strike in the 35th that leveled it at 1-1.

Will Johnson opened the scoring for the Timbers in the 14th minute and Frederic Piquionne found a consolation goal in the dying seconds of regulation.
