SANDY, Utah – The Colorado Rapids gave up an own goal early in the first half against Real Salt Lake to give the home side a 1-0 lead on Saturday night.

In the 14th minute, the Colorado Rapids were playing a ball back to their goalkeeper William Yarbrough when he was already thinking of his next move when the ball went into the back of his net.

That gave Real Salt Lake a 1-0 lead early in the first half of the Rocky Mountain Rivalry. RSL sent out some fun jabs on social media after being gifted a goal.

After the goal, the camera had a close up shot on Yarbrough as he looked stunned that the ball went past him without much of an effort.
