SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Anderson Julio scored a late goal and prevented Vancouver Whitecaps FC from shutting out Real Salt Lake.

In the 90th minute of action, Julio took advantage of a deflection off the crossbar and scored RSL’s only goal of the match.

The forward’s goal cut Whitecaps FC’s lead to 4-1.
