SANDY, Utah, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Alvaro Saborio converted a penalty kick in the 37th minute Saturday and Western Conference-leading Real Salt Lake edged Houston 1-0.

With the game scoreless, Olmes Garcia drew a foul on Houston's Adam Moffat in the box and Saborio converted the ensuing penalty kick for his fifth goal in three games.

RSL (12-7-5) regained the lead for the Supporters Shield -- indicative of the best record in the league -- with the victory.

The Dynamo (9-7-6) fell for the first time in five contests.
