SANDY, Utah — Robbie Keane scored late in the first half and the Galaxy bounced back from a season-opening loss with a 1-1 draw against Real Salt Lake on Saturday.

Alvaro Saborio had his first goal of the season for Salt Lake (1-0-2), which tied for the second consecutive match. The Galaxy (0-1-1) stole a road point against the team that beat them in the MLS season opener.

Salt Lake struck in the 19th minute when Joao Plata crossed the ball to Saborio, who was unmarked near the far post. He took full advantage, settling the ball and firing it from just outside the six-yard box for an easy goal.

The Galaxy capitalized on a poor pass by Chris Wingert at midfield to pull the goal back before halftime. After the takeaway, Keane outmaneuvered Chris Schuler and threaded the ball inside the near post in the 35th minute.
