SANDY, Utah (AP) — Joao Plata scored his sixth goal of the season and Real Salt Lake remained undefeated with a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids in the opening match of the Rocky Mountain Cup rivalry Saturday night.

RSL (6-0-5) hasn't dropped a game in its first 11 matches this season and is the only undefeated team in Major League Soccer.

Plata scored in the 23rd minute with a roller past goalkeeper Clint Irwin to the far post.

Javier Morales scored on a penalty kick in the 52nd minute to put RSL up 2-0. It was Morales' fourth goal.

The Rapids (4-4-3) avoided the shutout with defender Drew Moor's header into the corner in the 83rd minute.
