RSL Rewind: John Wilson concedes two late PK's to give RSL win

By Sam Stejskal

Way, way back on July 29, 2006, Real Salt Lake converted a pair of penalty kicks in second half stoppage time to beat D.C. United 2-1 at Rice-Eccles Stadium. 

The D.C. player who conceded both penalties? John Wilson, now a defender with the USL Pro Charleston Battery.

Oh, and the color commentator on the broadcast is none other than RSL GM Garth Lagerwey, D.C.'s TV analyst from 2001-2007.

RSL will host the Battery in the fourth-round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup at 7:30 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium on Wednesday. Click here to get your tickets.
