RSL defeats Minnesota United

Published 5:32 pm Sunday, June 18, 2017

Yura Movsisyan scored a late goal and Real Salt Lake beat expansion Minnesota United 1-0 on Saturday night.

Movsisyan chipped in from point-blank range in the 84th minute. Justen Glad’s header of a corner kick by Joao Plata was stopped by Bobby Shuttleworth, but the goalkeeper lost control of the ball and Movsisyan poked home his fifth goal of the season.

Shuttleworth had a season-high eight saves, his most since recording nine for New England in a 0-0 draw at Portland on May 2, 2013, as Real Salt Lake outshot Minnesota 29-5.
