NYCFC started the game off strong but ultimately found themselves on the losing end to host Real Salt Lake 3-1 on Saturday evening in front of 18,000 fans at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Alexander Ring got the visiting NYCFC off on the right foot as he drilled one into the net from the top of the box just four minutes into the match. However that’s all the scoring City would get as RSL scored the next three goals of the match.
– 4′ – NYCFC – Alexander Ring
