Sandy • Real Salt Lake could not overcome a pair of first half goals, falling to the visiting Los Angeles Galaxy 2-0 at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday night.
L.A. midfielder Mike Magee struck first, heading in a Juninho free kick in the game’s sixth minute. Seven minutes later, forward Charlie Rugg, making his MLS debut in place of an injured Robbie Keane, tapped in a shot that beat RSL goalie Nick Rimando.
