After a scoreless first half, a tackle that took out Morales’ legs gave Kansas City a yellow card and Real Salt Lake a free kick from 30 yards out. After Morales chipped the ball into the air, Kansas City ‘keeper Jimmy Nielsen mistimed his jump, tapping the ball behind him where Robbie Findley was ready to head in the goal.

But only seconds after RSL defender Chris Wingert picked up his second yellow card of the match, Sporting Kansas City took advantage. Forward Soony Saad hit home a Claudio Bieler pass to beat third-string goalkeeper Jeff Attinella.

And at the end of five minutes of stoppage time, Kansas City’s Kei Kamara found the game winner.
