RSL vs. Seattle: Jefferson Savarino, Man of the Match

The Venezuelan stood out once again.

Savarino is making RSL scout Andy Williams and GM Craig Waibel look really good lately, and his performance against Seattle was no exception.

Jefferson put Real Salt Lake on the board from a difficult angle with Ozzie Alonso and Stefan Frei closing in quick. Savarino found the opening and got the shot off as fast as possible.

Savarino put the work in on defense and tracked down balls that looked like they were destined to change possession, and it paid off. Particularly when Savarino found a streaking Luke Mulholland to pick up an assist and provide RSL with the insurance goal they needed.

No doubt about it, Savarino was the RSL Man of the Match against the defending champions.
