Real Salt Lake Vs. Rapids Final Score: Colorado Takes 1-0 Win On M Joseph Nane Goal

The Colorado Rapids (8-14-1, 25 pts) beat Real Salt Lake (13-8-3, 42 pts) in a 1-0 match Saturday night.

The Salt Lake offense managed only 4 attempts on goal, with only 1 on target. G Matt Pickens added only 1 save to his stat sheet, but that was all the Rapids defense needed.

Despite a 51.6% possession rate, Real Salt Lake could not get through the Rapids lines, but the Colorado offense managed to put just enough pressure on G Nick Rimando. With under 10 minutes remaining in the first half, M Joseph Nane redirected a deflection to give Colorado the eventual game-winning goal:

The Rapids totaled 16 attempts on goal, with only 3 of those attempts being on target, but their effort proved sufficient enough to beat the No. 2 team of the Western Conference.
