CARSON, California -- Robbie Findley scored the game's lone goal as Real Salt Lake posted a 1-0 triumph over Chivas USA on Saturday.

Nick Rimando made four saves en route to his third shutout of the season for Real (4-5-3), which beat Chivas (4-6-2) on the road for the first time in franchise history.

Findley notched his third goal this season in the 34th minute when he tucked a left-footed shot past Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, who came out to challenge but ended up sliding out of position.

Chivas had multiple chances to level the contest in the second half, but Rimando was up to the challenge.

Ante Razov fired a shot to the low left corner between a wall of Real defenders on a free kick in the 56th minute and Rimando made a diving stop to preserve the lead.

Rimando, who now has 46 career blankings, also denied Justin Braun's breakaway attempt in the 63rd minute. Braun was all alone but rushed his shot and Rimando made the save easily.
