RSL concede late goal to draw 2-2 with Philadelphia Union

Mitchell Leff

Real Salt Lake conceded a late goal against Philadelphia Union to draw 2-2 on the road in a back-and-forth match that, once it hit full speed, never really slowed down.

Olmes Garcia won a penalty to start the match, with Philadelphia defender Austin Berry sending the Colombian to the floor with a shoulder barge just inside the area.

Alvaro Saborio's ensuing penalty was saved by Zac MacMath, but Luke Mulholland pushed into the box on the right side to finish the rebound - which seems rather a common theme with the Englishman.

Andrew Wenger equalized for Philadelphia Union in the 58th minute, with RSL being caught out on the counter. Some miscommunication at the back saw Schuler and Wingert both pushed forward, opening up space for a quick cross to Wenger, who controlled neatly and finished twice so.

Kyle Beckerman scored the second goal for RSL, finishing a pass back into the area from Javier Morales, who kept with play to win the ball back in a dangerous position. Tony Beltran and Sebastian Velasquez both kept the ball alive for Real Salt Lake during the course of the play.

Maurice Edu scored from a corner kick on the edge of time to round things out, and given he was unmarked in the area, there will rightly be questions asked about our set piece defense.

RSL remains undefeated through the season, and with four of their six games on the road, it's hard to be terribly upset.
