CASA GRANDE, Ariz. — Real Salt Lake twice fell behind, yet also managed to lose a lead during a 3-3 exhibition draw against fellow MLS Western Conference side Seattle Sounders FC this afternoon at the Grande Sports World training complex.
In a 110-minute affair played across three periods (45/35/30), RSL coach Jason Kreis continued to build towards CONCACAF Champions League play in just two weeks' time against Columbus, playing the bulk of his starting 11 for 80 minutes, during which time the teams played to a 1-1 stalemate. The goals would come fast and furious in the last 30-minute stanza, when Collen Warner bagged a pair of goals two minutes apart to pull the Claret-and-Cobalt even and into the lead in the 97th and 99th minutes, respectively. However, a last-gasp attack by Sounders FC would lead to a penalty kick conversion from Fredy Montero in the final minute, forcing a share of the spoils on the day.
