CARSON, Calif. -- Ned Grabavoy scored in the fourth and 91st minutes and Real Salt Lake beat Chivas USA 4-1 on Sunday night to win for the third time in four matches.

Joao Plata added a goal in the 48th minute as Real Salt Lake (6-5-2) extended Chivas winless streak to six.

Grabavoy opened the scoring when he took a pass from Javier Morales and beat Dan Kennedy from inside the penalty area. It was Grabavoy's first regular-season goal since Oct. 16, 2010.

Three minutes into the second half, Plata sprinted past Chivas' defenders and slipped a shot in from the edge of the penalty area.

Chivas (3-6-2) pulled a goal back in the 55th minute when Edgar Mejia crossed the ball from the right and Jorge Villafana knocked a header past Nick Rimando.

Robbie Findley added a goal in the 78th minute, pouncing on a loose ball inside the 6-yard box when Chivas defender Walter Vilchez misplayed a cross.

Grabavoy broke in alone on Kennedy in stoppage time and buried his attempt.
