Marcus Epps and Borek Dockal scored in the first half and the Philadelphia Union added two more in the second to beat Real Salt Lake 4-1 on Saturday night.
Fabrice-Jean Picault had a 40-yard run up the left channel to set up the opening goal in the 21st minute, rounding his defender and slotting a cross through several defenders to find Epps for the finish.
Dockal chipped home Alejandro Bedoya’s through ball to make it 2-0 for the Union (4-5-2) in the 34th minute.
Damir Kreilach pulled Real Salt Lake (4-6-1) to 2-1 in the 65th minute. Sebastian Saucedo made a run at the end line and cut the pass back to Kreilach.
Ilsinho capped a fast break to make it 3-1 in the 74th minute, and Keegan Rosenberry drove one home from 25 yards to cap the scoring in the 81st.
