Outlook: There was no reason for the Revolution to lose this game. This one hurts, and it's all down to the fact that they stopped attacking after they scored. Real Salt Lake pick up a very valuable away result.

Final: Revolution 1, Salt Lake 2

90th minute stoppage time- Sene has his penalty kick saved by Nick Rimando.

90th minute- Salcedo sees his second yellow, gets a red card, and gets sent off. Referee calls a penalty kick for the Revolution.

89th minute- And Real Salt Lake takes the lead. Olmes Garcia puts it into the goal. Kyle Beckerman fires a bullet that Shuttleworth stops. But Beckerman is there to pounce on the rebound.

83rd minute- Former Revolution midfielder Kenny Mansally enters the game for Devon Sandoval for Real Salt Lake.

77th minute- Velasquez takes a shot, has it stopped by Shuttleworth. Sandoval buries the rebound into the back of the net to level the game.

76th minute- Bobby Shuttleworth makes a big save, he dives left to stop a point-blank header by Devon Sandoval off a Ned Grabavoy cross.

74th minute- Juan Toja on for Lee Nguyen (NE)...Toja draws a booking seconds into taking the field.

73rd minute- RSL tacking on the pressure but the Revs stay strong. Shuttleworth has made two saves tonight.

64th minute- Revolution starting to stay back in defend, but Saer Sene replaces Diego Fagundez.

60th minute- Revolution playing with some swag since taking the lead.

51st minute- Kelyn Rowe dribbles down the right flank and crosses into the center of the penalty area. Ryan Guy connects with the cross and volleys first-time into the back of the net. That's his first goal of the season and the fourth of his Revolution career.

48th minute- Fagundez takes a shot and has it saved by Rimando


45th minute- The Revolution looked good at the start of the half while Salt Lake didn't really show anything. Both teams need to improve in the second half.

36th minute- Salcedo gets yellow carded for elbowing Chris Tierney. Ugly play.

27th minute- This game just got very dull. Not really any chances on either side.

17th minute- Both teams starting to get careless with the ball but the Revolution still look like the better team.

7th minute- Bengston gets in behind, cuts past Rimando, loses his angle and then passes to Fagundez. Fagundez whiffs, ball falls to Nguyen who gets it back to Bengston. Bengston has shot deflected over the crossbar. Someone needed to put that chance away.
6th minute- The Revolution have been the more offensive team through the first five minutes.

3rd minute- Bengston nearly connects with a cross from Lee Nguyen, but Chris Schuler dealt with it well.
