Result: Real Salt Lake 1-0 DC United

Real Salt Lake edge past DC United 1-0 in their latest MLS game at the Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

Real Salt Lake have edged past DC United 1-0 in their latest Major League Soccer fixture at the Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

Both sets of players were called off the pitch after just three minutes due to lightning and storm, as the game did not resume for a lengthy period of time.

When the game eventually restarted, both teams went out at each other, but it was Real who found the only goal of the encounter in the 49th minute.

Paulo Junior's cross from the left took a deflection off Brandon McDonald and before United goalkeeper Bill Hamid could react, Will Johnson headed the ball home from just four yards.

The result means that United have now lost their sixth successive away match and are tied with the Chicago Fire in sixth place in the MLS Eastern Conference.
