Beyond the Box Score presented by Compass Minerals: Prolific Alan Pulido provides bright spot in loss to RSL

In an otherwise forgetful 3-1 road loss to rivals Real Salt Lake on Saturday afternoon, forward Alan Pulido offered a prompt reminder of his undeniable quality.

The Sporting Kansas City forward orchestrated his team's first-half goal from start to finish, bursting into the attacking half and spreading the ball wide right to Khiry Shelton before receiving the return pass a few seconds later to cap off a devastating counter-attack with a cool finish into the back of the net.

Sporting's club-record signing had been limited to second-half substitute appearances in the first two matches of the 2021 MLS campaign due to an injury sustained in preseason.
