May 28, 2011 at 11:48 PM

SANDY, Utah, May 28 (UPI) -- Patrick Ianni and Lamar Neagle scored second-half goals Saturday and the Seattle Sounders registered a 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake.

Ianni scored on a close-range shot off a corner kick from Fredy Montero in the 72nd minute and Neagle doubled Seattle's lead 12 minutes later with a rocket into the upper-right corner of the net from outside the penalty area.

Seattle (5-4-5) was playing with a man advantage after Salt Lake defender Jamison Olave was slapped with a straight red card, and the Sounders used the advantage to end RSL's 29-game home unbeaten streak.

Salt Lake (5-2-2) got to within a goal when Nelson Gonzalez scored on a set-up by substitute Luis Gil, but they could come no closer.
