Morales Leads Way and RSL Blanks Earthquakes 3-0
SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Javier Morales scored a goal and assisted another to fuel a first-half outburst that lifted Real Salt Lake to a 3-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night.
Robbie Findley and Ned Grabavoy each chipped in first-half goals for RSL (7-5-3), which beat the Earthquakes (3-6-6) for the second straight time this season and extended their winless streak to four games.
Morales has 12 goals and assists during his MLS career against the Earthquakes. He assumed his familiar role as San Jose's tormentor right away.
San Jose offered little resistance in keeping RSL from running away with the game. The Earthquakes created zero shots before halftime. Salt Lake, on the other hand, had six shots on goal alone and totaled 12 shots going into the locker room.
