Real Salt Lake nets 3-1 victory over Colorado on back of Kreilach masterclass

Real Salt Lake secured the 2021 Rocky Mountain Cup in nail-biting fashion, keeping a dangerous Colorado Rapids team at bay in a 2-1 victory.

Damir Kreilach netted the opener in classic fashion, scoring a headed goal in the 13th minute for his 14th of the year — and the provider is exactly who you’d expect, with Aaron Herrera grabbing his 10th assist of 2021.

Kreilach’s goal marked his fifth consecutive with one, dating back to RSL’s 1-0 win over Seattle Sounders. It marked a new record for consecutive games with a goal, putting him over Luis Silva, Jeff Cunningham and Alvaro Saborio, each of whom had four consecutive goal-scoring games.
