Savarino's stoppage goal lifts Real Salt Lake past Atlanta

SANDY, Utah (AP) Jefferson Savarino's long-range blast late in stoppage time gave Real Salt Lake a 2-1 victory over Atlanta United on Friday night.

Savarino shook free and sent a high, hard shot from outside the box to the far side for his second goal of the season.

Sebastian Saucedo opened the scoring for Salt Lake (6-6-1) in the 36th minute. Outside the box, Saucedo put the ball between diving goalkeeper Brian Guzan and the post.

Josef Martinez tied it for defending MSL champion Atlanta (6-5-2) in the 78th minute. Martinez finished a run down the middle by slipping around a defender in the box just in time to slot Franco Escobar's centering pass past Nick Rimando.
