SANDY, Utah (AP) Jefferson Savarino and Luke Mulholland scored in the second half and Real Salt Lake brought the Seattle Sounders' 13-game unbeaten streak to an end with a 2-0 win on Saturday night.

Nick Rimando made a pair of key saves, both stopping Clint Dempsey's attempts, to preserve Real Salt Lake's lead in the final 15 minutes. Real Salt Lake (12-14-5) moved into fifth place in the Western Conference.

Savarino opened the scoring in the 52nd minute, finishing Albert Rusnak's cross into the far corner from the right side of the box.

Mulholland smashed home Savarino's wide cross with a short-hop volley in the 66th.

The Sounders (11-8-11), despite coming into the match with the club's longest unbeaten streak, had also been winless since Aug. 20 and extended their slide to five games.
