Real Salt Lake finished their first game against expansion side Austin FC with a 1-0 win, thanks to the lone goal from Bobby Wood in the first half. The home side heavily outshot the visitors 14-9 overall with 8-1 on frame. This is the first win for RSL after going winless in their last three.
Bobby Wood scored his second goal for the club when Jony Menendez sent in a perfect ball from the far right side of the attacking area. The ball, seemingly magnetized to Wood’s head, bounced off Bobby perfectly and past Brad Stuver, putting the home side up 1-0 about 10 minutes before the half.
