FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Real Salt Lake (5-4-2, 17 points, West #2) opened its three-game road trip in dramatic fashion on Wednesday night, scoring twice in the final 15 minutes and getting a stoppage time penalty kick save from GK Nick Rimando to down the New England Revolution (2-4-3, 9 points, East #8) 2-1 at Gillette Stadium.
New England MF Ryan Guy opened the scoring in the 51st minute, volleying a 15-yard shot inside the right post to put the Revs on top. RSL responded well after falling behind, getting an equalizer from first-time scorer FW Devon Sandoval in the 77th minute and a winner from FW Olmes Garcia in the 89th.

Real Salt Lake Head Coach Jason Kreis
“I felt like we could get the ball fairly easy into their half. We lacked a little bit of sharpness in the offensive third in the first half. In the second half, when they scored the goal, I felt like they dropped really, really deep and put all their numbers behind the ball. And then it’s going to be difficult to find yourself with some time and space in front of the goal. Credit to our guys that they kept at it and I think this could be a big emotional win for us.”
