Final Result: Real Salt Lake at Chivas USA

Final score 2-2, 3-2 on aggregate to give RSL the win.

It appeared this game – and Chivas USA’s season – was over in the 77th minute when a Real Salt Lake counter attack saw Javier Morales beat Sacha Kljestan, thread the ball through Shavar Thomas’ legs and send a shot wide into the net past the immobile Zach Thornton.

That made the score 2-1, 3-1 on aggregate and surely a deficit that couldn’t be overcome.

But self-confessed RSL fan Justin Braun gave Chivas USA hope with a lovely 83rd minute goal that made it 2-2.

Chivas USA valiantly went in search of an equalizer, buoyed by five minutes of overtime but failed to break RSL down.

Chivas USA’s season is really over now.

More later.
