Steele's late winner propels RSL past winless TFC

Real Salt Lake figured to have an easy time disposing of Toronto FC on Saturday night, but they had a much tougher time than expected as TFC showed signs of life and looked primed to record their first point of the season.

Then their defense reminded us just why Toronto has yet to register a point all season.

With the score tied 2-2 in second-half stoppage time, Steele played the role of hero for RSL when he latched onto a Kyle Beckerman pass and slotted a shot past Milos Kocic to give Real Salt Lake a 3-2 victory at Rio Tinto Stadium.

The loss dropped TFC to 0-7, making Toronto just the second team in MLS history to start a season 0-7 (1999 Kansas City Wizards).

TFC rallied back twice, to tie the match at 1-1 and 2-2, with Eric Avila and Doneil Henry scoring the goals, but RSL squeezed out an important home win to snap a three-match winless streak.

Here are the match highlights:
