SANDY, Utah (AP) - Devon Sandoval scored twice, Javier Morales converted a penalty kick and Real Salt Lake beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 3-0 on Saturday night.

Sandoval opened the scoring in the third minute with a left-footed shot from the left side of the 6-yard box to inside the far post, finishing Aaron Maund’s headed pass. Sandoval capped the scoring in the 53rd, stretching up for a header from the middle of the box off Juan Manuel Martinez’s cross.

Morales converted from the spot in the 28th minute for RSL (10-11-8, 38 points), which kept its playoff hopes alive by moving within three points of the sixth-place Portland Timbers.

The Galaxy (13-9-8, 47 points) remained tied with FC Dallas for second place in the Western Conference, one point behind the Vancouver Whitecaps.
