June 8, 2011 at 10:07 PM   |   Comments

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 8 (UPI) -- Andres Mendoza and Josh Gardner scored in the final 15 minutes Wednesday, rallying Columbus to a 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake.

Salt Lake dominated the first 75 minutes of the contest and had the lead thanks to a goal by Jamison Olave in the 7th minute.

Olave, however, brought down Justin Meram in the area and Mendoza's penalty kick tied it.

Gardner's goal came when his hard shot from 25 yards out ricocheted off Columbus defender Chris Schuler and drifted over the head of goalkeeper Nick Rimando with 8 minutes to play.

Columbus improved to 4-3-6 and Salt Lake fell to 6-3-2.
