Real Salt Lake will play in the final of the Desert Diamond Cup preseason tournament thanks to a furious come-from-behind win over the New England Revolution Wednesday.

After RSL rookie Devon Sandoval scored a first-half goal, Salt Lake gave up a pair of second half goals to the Revolution. RSL tied the game on an Alvaro Saborio goal in the 88th minute. Trialist Khari Stephenson scored the go-ahead goal in the 90th minute.

With the victory, RSL advances to the final of the Tucson preseason tournament. Salt Lake will take on the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.
