Real Salt Lake became just the second team in Major League Soccer history to score six times against the Los Angeles Galaxy, cruising to a stunning 6-2 victory on Independence Day evening at the StubHub Center.
Jefferson Savarino hit a pair of second-half goals, and Ablert Rusnak, Kyle Beckerman, Yura Movsisyan and Joao Plata each added one goal apiece as Salt Lake halted a brief two-match losing skid by scoring four times after halftime.
Goals in the first half by Ashley Cole and late in the second by Bradford Jamieson couldn't prevent the Galaxy from a third consecutive league defeat.
