Saborio leads Real over struggling Toronto

Jun 26, 2011 - 3:29 AM Sandy, UT (Sports Network) - Real Salt Lake turned a four-game winless streak into a four-game unbeaten streak Saturday night at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Alvaro Saborio scored twice to lead Real to a 3-1 win over struggling Toronto FC, as the Utah club snapped a four-game streak without a win - the last three were draws - to move within nine points of the Western Conference lead.

Real (7-3-5) is now undefeated in its last four, three ties and a victory, and has played four fewer games than the Los Angeles Galaxy, who sit atop the West division of Major League Soccer.

Toronto FC (2-7-9) remained winless in eight road matches this season, and has not won in its last nine matches dating back to a May 7 win over the Houston Dynamo.

Defender Nat Borchers opened the scoring for Real Salt Lake in the 39th minute when deposited Kyle Beckerman's cross into the net with a header to the lower right for his first goal of the season.

Saborio doubled the lead three minutes later with his first goal of the season when he turned a Robbie Russell cross into the net from close range. Saborio added his second off another pass from Russell, this time scoring to the lower right in the 60th.

Maicon Santos pulled a goal back for Toronto in the 66th, as he connected off a shot from outside the area for his sixth goal of the season. But Toronto was not able to mount comeback, as Aron Winter's first year in charge continues to be a tough one.

Toronto will try to end its woes Wednesday at home against Vancouver Whitecaps FC, which won the first match between the teams 4-2 on March 19. Real returns to MLS action July 4 at home against the New England Revolution.
