Real Salt Lake

Joao Plata’s goals in the 77th and 85th minutes put Real Salt Lake within striking distance, but the Claret and Cobalt couldn’t complete the comeback as Minnesota United FC held on for a 3-2 win over RSL on Saturday in Minneapolis. Minnesota (7-11-1) scored all three of its goals in a span of 17:04 in the second half after RSL (9-9-2) dominated much of the first half, but hadn’t scored. Real Salt Lake is now 1-8-1 on the road, compared to 8-1-1 on its home pitch. RSL, which sits in fifth place in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference, will play host to Rocky Mountain Cup rival Colorado on Saturday at 8 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy.

Utah Royals FC

Amy Rodriguez gave URFC a 1-0 lead less than eight minutes into Saturday’s National Women’s Soccer League match at Rio Tinto Stadium against the Orlando Pride, but U.S. Women’s National Team star Alex Morgan tied the match with a penalty-kick goal in first-half stoppage time and Kristen Edmonds added another tally in the 52nd minute to propel Orlando to a 2-1 victory. The Royals’ third consecutive loss dropped them to 5-6-6 overall, putting them in sixth place in the nine-team league. Up next for URFC is a matchup against the league’s top team, the North Carolina Courage (14-1-3), on Friday at 8 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Utah Jazz

The Jazz went 1-1 in tournament play at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, beating the Orlando Magic 75-70 on Thursday before losing to the Memphis Grizzlies 92-86 on Saturday. Georges Niang led the Jazz with 16 points and nine rebounds in the loss to the Grizzlies, while Diamond Stone had 11 and Naz Mitrou-Long and Trey Lewis each had 10. Stone (14 points, 11 rebounds) and Niang (12 points, 11 rebounds) each had double-doubles in the win over Orlando, and Kendrick Ray added 10 points. First-round draft pick Grayson Allen didn’t play in either of the tournament games and averaged 16.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in two preliminary-round games. Niang earned himself a contract with the Jazz by averaging 15.6 points and 6.6 rebounds in five summer-league games in Las Vegas.
