HOUSTON (AP) — Javier Morales scored three times to lead Real Salt Lake past a 10-man Houston Dynamo 5-2 Sunday night to extend their unbeaten streak to 10 games to start the season.
Alvaro Saborio added a goal, and Luke Mulholland scored late in the second half for Salt Lake (5-0-5).
Mark Sherrod scored twice for Houston (4-5-2), which had its three-game unbeaten streak snapped.
Morales gave Salt Lake a 1-0 lead just 15 seconds into the match, settling a Saborio pass and firing inside the upper left post.
The goal was the quickest scored in Real Salt Lake history and fourth-fastest in MLS history. New York's Tim Cahill scored the fastest goal in MLS history 7 seconds in against Houston on Oct. 23, 2013.
