Javier Morales scores fastest RSL goal ever, 15 seconds in against Houston

Javier Morales broke one Real Salt Lake record today when he scored a fabulous chip over Houston Dynamo's Tally Hall to open the scoring.

Fifteen seconds is all it took for Morales to break that record, which was previously held by Matias Mantilla, fellow Argentine, against Kansas City Wizards in 2008.

It's apparently the fourth-fastest goal in MLS history.

The player called it "lucky" during his halftime interview, but we at RSL Soapbox prefer to see it as pure skill. Of course, it took 16 minutes to score another goal — but that's another story.
