Vancouver Whitecaps 1-1 Real Salt Lake: Late penalty costs RSL

Nick Rimando did a lot for Real, but couldn't keep out Camilo's late penalty and RSL had to settle for a draw.

Real Salt Lake rode the play of goalkeeper Nick Rimando and thought it had secured victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps, but a late slip-up saw the Canadian club snatch one back to claim a 1-1 draw.

Rimando made six saves in the game as Vancouver carved out the lion's share of scoring chances.

Real Salt Lake found the net in the 66th minute. Javier Morales passed to Olmes Garcia on the outside corner of the penalty area, and the substitute scored a thrilling strike from distance to give the Royals a narrow lead. Garcia was then shown a yellow card fro removing his shirt in celebration.

Vancouver equalized in the 84th minute. Camilo Sanvezzo converted from the penalty spot after RSL defender Nat Borchers was whistled for a handball inside area.
