SANDY, Utah (AP) – Alvaro Saborio found his offensive form after struggling in the Gold Cup with Costa Rica, scoring twice in Real Salt Lake's 3-1 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday night.
Nat Borchers also scored to help Salt Lake (7-3-5) snap a four-game winless streak.
Salt Lake struck first in the 39th minute on Borchers' header off Kyle Beckerman's corner kick.
Saborio made it 2-0 in the 42nd minute, tracking down a bouncing cross from Beckerman and tapping it across the line. Saborio added his second goal of the game in the 60th minute after tracking down a lob pass from Robbie Russell deep in the box and slotting it inside the right post.
Toronto scored in the 66th minute when Malcom Santos slipped by Jamison Olave and blasted a shot past goalkeeper Nick Rimando's left side.
RSL had little trouble controlling possession and attacking Toronto's goal from the early moments of the match. The team's aggressiveness nearly paid off early. Only a stunning save by goalkeeper Stefan Frei in the 15th minute kept Salt Lake from getting on the scoreboard earlier.
Collen Warner sidestepped a defender and blasted a right-footed shot from the left side of the box. Frei got a fingertip on the ball as it neared the bottom left corner and stopped it at the line to deny Warner his first career MLS goal. Danleigh Borman cleared the ball off the line immediately to prevent Saborio from following up as he charged toward the center of the net.
