Joao Plata breaks tie on penalty kick in 65th minute, Real Salt Lake beats Revolution 2-1
SANDY, Utah - Joao Plata broke a tie on a penalty kick in the 65th minute and Real Salt Lake beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Friday night to end a five-game winless streak.
Plata blasted a rising shot to the upper left corner for his team-leading seventh goal of the season. He got the kick after referee Allen Chapman ruled Chris Tierney fouled John Stertzer in the penalty area.
Javier Morales opened the scoring for Real Salt Lake (7-3-7) on a penalty kick in the 35th minute. The Revolution (7-7-2) tied it two minutes later when Darrius Barnes slipped behind the defence for a header off Tierney's free kick.
New England has lost four straight.
