Real Salt Lake 3:0 Toronto FC: Highlights and Match Summary

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Toronto FC have suffered their first loss of the 2014 season at the hands of 2013 runner up Real Salt Lake.

Toronto FC have suffered their first loss of the 2014 MLS Season, falling 3-0 to Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium. The poor possession and passing numbers finally caught up with the club, as they were dominated from start to finish by a more organized and opportunistic RSL side.

Alvaro Saborio converted a penalty in the 11th minute and added a goal in the 55th to lead the home side to victory. Luis Gil had the other goal as a result of one of the many instances of dominating ball control from Real Salt Lake.

The crowd at Rio Tinto was jubilant throughout the match, a first taste of what it now means for other supporters to have their clubs beat Toronto FC. As the game wound down they chanted "Overrated" at the disgruntled away players.

A more detailed analysis of what went wrong for TFC will be posted later. But here are the highlights and match summary of Toronto's first setback of 2014.
