MLS Game Summary - Vancouver at Real Salt Lake



(Saturday, July 19, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Vancouver 1, Real Salt Lake 1

Sandy, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Joao Plata scored in the 81st minute to help Real Salt Lake earn a 1-1 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday.

The Whitecaps went in front in the 72nd minute after Darren Mattocks converted a penalty kick following a contentious decision inside the area, but Plata answered back nine minutes later to help his side salvage a point and avoid a fourth loss in five games.

Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted was called into action just three minutes into the contest when a free kick from Javier Morales forced Ousted to make a diving stop at his top right corner.

Mattocks had the best chance of the half for the Whitecaps in the 38th minute when he raced past an RSL defender and got into the penalty area on the left before curling a shot wide of the far post from six yards.

Morales had another good look on a set piece from the edge of the area with 20 minutes to play, but his dipping effort sailed just inches over the crossbar.

Salt Lake defender Nat Borchers was then called for a very questionable penalty in the 72nd when he appeared to get the ball in a tackle with Mattocks inside his own box. But referee Edvin Jurisevic pointed to the spot and Mattocks sent goalkeeper Nick Rimando the wrong way.

The hosts responded well, however, and pressured Vancouver for the rest of the most before being rewarded in the 81st minute as Kyle Beckerman played a ball wide to Plata on the left, allowing him to get into the penalty area and drive a shot inside the far post.
