SANDY, Utah, July 8 (UPI) -- Striker Alvaro Saborio netted a hat trick Saturday, powering Real Salt Lake to a 3-0 victory over Portland.

Kyle Beckerman put a pass into the penalty area in the 60th minute and SaborĂ­o jumped to meet it, redirecting the ball into the corner of the net to break a scoreless tie.

The Costa Rican struck again just 2 minutes later, scoring off a cross from Chris Wingert.

Saborio's header in the 75th minute capped the scoring for Salt Lake (11-6-3), which ended a four-game winless streak and remained in second place in the Western Conference.

Portland (5-8-4) fell to 0-6-2 on the road.
