FC Dallas 1, Real Salt Lake 1 | 2018 MLS Match Recap
Real Salt Lake were on the way to a big road win in their 2018 season opener. Then disaster struck via one of their players.
A late own goal from Marcelo Silva saw RSL settle for a 1-1 draw with FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium on Saturday night. Silva's botched clearance came in the 86th minute after some good work down the right from Maximiliano Urruti, and it canceled out Joao Plata's first-half strike.
Plata found the opener and RSL's first goal of the season in the 25th minute, collecting a ball down the left and dribbling forward before cutting and slotting the ball home. It did not stand as the winner, however, as Silva failed to properly handle Urruti's low cross.
