SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake MF Javier Morales scored a 97th minute penalty kick goal to give 10-man RSL a wild 2-2 draw with the Philadelphia Union in front of a sold-out crowd at Rio Tinto Stadium on Wednesday night.
Morales put his spot kick off of the right post and in with virtually the final kick of the match to extend RSL’s unbeaten streak to 10 games across all competitions.
The Claret-and-Cobalt went down a man when trailing 1-0 in the 59th minute, when Referee Ismail Elfath controversially showed RSL DF Lovel Palmer a straight red card for a tackle on Philadelphia MF Michael Farfan. RSL substitute MF Luis Gil equalized for the Utah side in the 75th, only for Union FW Conor Casey to give Philadelphia its second lead of the night one minute later.
