Ibarra’s clutch goal in crunch time earns draw for Minnesota United
SANDY, Utah — Miguel Ibarra tied it for Minnesota in the 84th minute in United’s 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.
Darwin Quintero found Ibarra open in the middle of box and Ibarra turned with a chip shot to beat the goalkeeper. Ibarra scored again three minutes later but had the goal reversed after video review.
Damir Kreilach shielded away Minnesota midfielder Fernando Bob on a pass from Sunny and scored on a right-footed roller from beyond the penalty box in the 11th minute for RSL (13-10-6).
RSL defender Justen Glad made a key clearance in the 48th minute, hustling back and kicking away Francisco Calvo’s long ball that would have been an easy finish for Minnesota’s Quintero.
Minnesota (9-16-3) ended a three-game losing streak. Real Salt Lake had its three-game winning streak snapped.
