Cavallin scores late to lift Whitecaps past Real Salt Lake
SANDY, Utah (AP) — Lucas Cavallini's sliding goal between a pair of defenders in the 84th minute gave the Vancouver Whitecaps a 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.
Cavillini's left-footed tap off a perfectly threaded center pass from Fredy Montero came just minutes after Real Salt Lake's Justin Meram tied it on a header with his 46th career MLS goal.
Vancouver (5-7-0) opened the scoring on David Milinkovic' goal in the 53rd minute. Ten minutes later, Kyle Beckerman received a red card and Real Salt Lake (3-3-5) played short-handed.
