RSL eases past Chivas to sustain lead
Fabian Espindola scored two goals to help Real Salt Lake beat Chivas USA 3-0 on Saturday night.
Espindola put Real Salt Lake (10-3-2) up in the 41st minute after a giveaway in midfield led to a Kyle Beckerman pass from 35 yards that found the Argentine, who eluded Chivas (4-7-3) defender Danny Califf to head in the opening goal.
Espindola added another goal in the 54th minutes when Ned Grabavoy found him mid-run. Espindola then deked past defender Rauwshan McKenzie before scoring his second of the night. With his two goal performance, Espindola placed himself in a tie with forward Alvaro Saborio for the club scoring lead.
Salt Lake added a third goal in stoppage time when midfielder Will Johnson had his first of the season.
With the win, the Eastern Conference leaders became the first side to make it to 10 wins this season
