Real Salt Lake settle for draw with Colorado, 2-2

Sports

SANDY, Utah (ABC4 Sports) – Real Salt Lake had to settle for a draw after dominating the pitch for the first 24 minutes. RSL jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead before a lightning storm stopped play for 70 minutes. In the 11th minute, Joao Plata sent the ball in to Damir Kreilach for a diving header to put RSL up 1-0. In the 17th minute, it was Plata’s turn to score as Jefferson Savarino set him up for the goal to take a 2-0 lead.

The lightning delay allowed Colorado to make some changes to their lineup and they came out more aggressive. After a video review in the 33rd minute, Jack McBean lined up for the penalty kick, getting it in past Nick Rimando. The score stayed 2-1 until the 88th minute when Edgar Castillo dribbled around three defenders to take a shot. Rimando made the initial save but Dillon Serna got to the rebound and put it just between Rimando and the post to tie it up at 2-2.

Real Salt Lake just wasn’t the same after the delay, according to Head Coach Mike Petke. “The break comes, and the only thing that they changed was a bit more bite, a bit more aggressive and we didn’t handle it well,” said Petke. “When I say we, I say the coaches and the players and me sitting up top. We’re all in this together. We let two points slip away.”
