SANDY, Utah -- Fanendo Adi scored a pair of goals and the Portland Timbers beat Real Salt Lake 3-1 Saturday night for their first victory at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Luke Mulholland scored for RSL, who are playing without team captain Kyle Beckerman and goalkeeper Nick Rimando while they are with the U.S. national team for the World Cup.

Timbers captain Will Johnson scored in the 73rd minute on a penalty kick he buried in the lower left corner.

Real Salt Lake (6-2-7) was coming off a midweek 1-1 draw at Columbus.

RSL had its record-tying 12-match unbeaten streak to start the season stopped last weekend with a 4-0 loss to Seattle.

The Timbers (4-4-7) were coming off a 4-3 loss at home to the Cascadia rival Vancouver Whitecaps last weekend.
