First Published Jul 04 2012 07:09 pm • Last Updated Jul 14 2012 05:04 pm

Sandy • Real Salt Lake had the best of a few scoring opportunities during a scoreless first half of Saturday’s MLS contest with visiting Seattle.

Both teams, lately struggling for victories as play began at Rio Tinto Stadium, played cautiously for about a quarter of an hour. RSL has lost three straight while the Sounders are on an eight-game winless streak.

Then, in the span of five minutes, RSL’s attack gained bite, including two headers by forward Alvaro Saborio. They had Sounders keeper Bryan Meredith beat, but were off target, sailing high and wide, respectively.

In the 32nd minute, Seattle midfielder Servando Carrasco cleared a Nat Borchers header off the line with his chest.

RSL keeper Nick Rimando had little trouble with Seattle’s only real threat. Rimando punched a long pass from his right off the line in the 24th minute.
