SANDY, Utah (AP) — Rubio Rubn scored two second-half goals Saturday, and Real Salt Lake beat Sporting Kansas City 3-1.

Rubn gave Salt Lake (2-0-0) a 2-1 lead in the 52nd minute with his first MLS goal and scored again in the 77th minute with a low-skidding strike from the top left corner of the 18-yard box. Rubn's parents were in attendance for the first time in his professional career.

Alan Pulido opened the scoring for Sporting (1-1-1) in the 17th minute. Khiry Shelton sent a pass across the top of the 18-yard box, Gianluca Busio drew in defender Justen Glad with a dummy run and the wide-open Pulido finished with a right-footed shot from 15 yards.

Damir Kreilach, who assisted both of Rubn's goals, tied it for Salt Lake in the 35th minute, heading home Andrew Brody's cross.
