RSL advances in CONCACAF league, dumps Toronto
Substitute Javier Morales scored on a free kick in the second
half Tuesday and Real Salt Lake reached the quarterfinals of the
CONCACAF Champions League with a 1-1 draw Tuesday night.
Toronto FC was eliminated from the tournament for top North
American and Caribbean pro teams.
Morales, in his first action since Sept. 9, curled a free kick
over the Toronto FC wall and past backup goalkeeper Jon Conway from
20 yards out in the 68th to cancel out Jacob Peterson’s first-half
Julian de Guzman got a head on Morales’ shot, but could only
deflect it into the roof of the Reds’ net.
Mexico’s Cruz Azul also advanced from the group thanks to a 2-0
win over Panama’s Arabe Unido.
