FRISCO, Texas, Oct. 30 (UPI) --
Substitute Eric Avila fired the ball past Real Salt Lake
goalkeeper Nick Rimando
in the 88th minute Saturday, delivering FC Dallas
a 2-1 playoff win.
Fabian Espindola had put Real Salt Lake, the defending Major League Soccer champions, up 1-0 5 minutes into the first leg of the Western Conference semifinal match.
Jeff Cunningham, subbing for injured Milton Rodriguez, tied it up for Dallas with a goal shortly before halftime.
The series moves to Utah next Saturday.
