Utah Royals FC midfielder Desiree Scott (11) and Chicago Red Stars midfielder Alyssa Mautz (4) compete for the ball at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

CARY, N.C — Three road matches. Three draws.

The Utah Royals have tied 0-0, 1-1 and now 2-2 in their three games away from Rio Tinto Stadium.

Utah looked like it had lined up a first-ever franchise victory after goals by Brittany Ratcliffe and Katie Stengel put URFC up 2-1, but Crystal Dunn scored late for the North Carolina Courage to salvage a point for the home team.

Merritt Mathias also scored for the Courage.

Utah returns home on April 28 to face the Portland Thorns at 7 p.m.
