Real Salt Lake goes top of MLS standings

Real Salt Lake goes top of MLS standings

A scoreless draw at Seattle on Thursday was enough for reigning MLS champions Real Salt Lake to move top of this season's standings.
The point moved the Utah club above the Los Angeles Galaxy on goal difference atop the Western Conference standings, and likewise equal on points but with a better goal difference than Eastern Conference leader Columbus. However, it has played one more game than both the Galaxy and the Crew.
Real Salt Lake kept a clean sheet despite being without regular goalkeeper Nick Rimando (Achilles' tendon) but his replacement Kyle Reynish had little to do, making only two saves.
Real has not conceded in four games, extending it flawless record to 452 minutes. It is unbeaten in seven games.
At the other end, veteran Seattle goalkeeper Kasey Keller saved a Robbie Findley penalty in the 32nd minute.
