RSL’s Sam Johnson Scores Late To Cut Into Montreal’s Lead
MONTREAL – He had a goal disallowed earlier in the game, but late in the match against the Montreal Impact, Real Salt Lake’s Sam Johnson found the back of the net on a goal.
Johnson’s effort in the 84th minute cut Montreal’s lead to 2-1.
The goal came after a long pass entered the box and was headed by RSL’s Damir Kreilach. From there the ball bounced off Corey Baird’s knee before Johnson put a foot on it and sent it into the goal.

It was Johnson’s fifth goal of the season, tying him with Albert Rusnak for the team lead.
After missing the game two weeks ago against Toronto FC and coming off the bench against Atlanta United, Johnson was back in the Starting XI for RSL against Montreal.
Johnson had a nice try at a goal earlier in the second half, but his header goal was called off after he was ruled offsides on the play.
RSL came into the match against Montreal on a three game winning streak.
