BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. – Real Salt Lake’s Albert Rusnak buried a penalty kick attempt to tie the game up at 1-all on the road against the Chicago Fire.

The penalty kick was awarded to RSL after Chicago’s Mohammed Adams batted down a bouncing ball with his hand while the ball was in the box, drawing a penalty.

Rusnak booted the ball right and Chicago goal keeper Kenneth Kronholm went left as the ball hit the twine. It was Rusnak’s sixth goal of the season.

The first goal of the game came on a free kick by Chicago’s Aleksander Katai after a questionable foul call on RSL’s Everton Luiz.

The match was RSL’s first game in MLS action since June 1. The team has not won a match since May 24.

Striker Sam Johnson, who has been one of the team’s top scorers this season, was not selected to RSL’s Starting XI against Chicago.

The match between RSL and the Chicago Fire can be streamed live on or on the KSL TV app.
