COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Just when it seemed that Real Salt Lake had blown an opportunity to pick up some big points on the road, their 2-0 lead was lost. Fortunately, Sam Johnson put RSL up again with a goal in the second half.

Just a couple minutes after Danny Wilson scored to tie the game up at 2-all with a goal early in the second half, Johnson capitalized on a great pass from Damir Kreilach to retake the lead at 3-2.

It was the fourth goal of the season for Johnson, who has proven to be an incredible offseason addition by RSL.

RSL also had goals from Albert Rusnak and Corey Baird in the match against the Rapids, which is the first leg of the 2019 Rocky Mountain Cup.

The match between RSL and Colorado can be streamed live on and the KSL TV app.
