The Associated PressJuly 12, 2014 

— Gyasi Zardes scored to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.

Marcelo Sarvas sent in a cross that Landon Donovan let it go past him for an oncoming Zardes. He controlled the ball with his left foot, then sent in a right-footed shot that hit off the left post and angled back behind the right goal line in the 20th minute.

It was Zardes' fourth goal in his last seven Major League Soccer matches.

Later, Sarvas earned a penalty kick in the final minute of stoppage time after being taken down by RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando inside the penalty area. His penalty kick to the lower left corner was saved by Rimando.

The Galaxy (6-3-6) extended their undefeated streak to seven games. Salt Lake fell to 7-4-7.
