Javier Morales scores goal against San Jose in Real Salt Lake's victory

Monday April 6th, 2015

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)—Javier Morales scored his ninth goal in 15 career meetings with San Jose and Real Salt Lake beat the Earthquakes 1-0 on Sunday.

Real Salt Lake (2-0-2) and the New York Red Bulls (2-0-1) are the only MLS clubs without a loss this season.

Morales' free kick in the 44th minute deflected off the wall, landed back at his feet and he found an opening for his second goal of the season.

San Jose's Sanna Nyassi fed Adam Jahn inside the 6-yard box, but Jahn's tricky backheel attempt went wide. Jahn rolled a breakaway chance in the 54th minute directly to RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando.

Shaun Francis went to the San Jose (2-3-0) locker room in the 38th minute after a head-to-head collision with RSL's Jordan Allen.

U.S. men's national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck were in attendance at the new Avaya Stadium.
