A perfect night for RSL tonight, with a sellout crowd, a nationally televised game, and a 4-2 victory over a tough Portland opponent. The goals for RSL came from MF Luis Gil in the 9th minute, F Joao Plata in the 15th minute, MF Javier Morales in the 55th minute, and F Alvaro Saborio in the 67th minute. Portland was able to keep things relatively close with goals from F Darlington Nagbe in the 31st minute and F Sal Zizzo in the 74th minute. But in the end, RSL was just too strong.

RSL will be off for a couple weeks, and will return to take on the Sounders (11-8-4, 37 points) in Seattle on September 13th. Game time is set for 8:00 pm MT. With the win, RSL improves to a record of 14-8-6 and 48 points. One more victory will give RSL their 4th 15 win, 50 point season in a row.
