MLS: Philadelphia 2, Real Salt Lake 2 (tie)

July 4, 2013 at 12:39 AM

SANDY, Utah, July 4 (UPI) -- Javier Morales scored on a penalty kick late in stoppage time Wednesday, lifting Real Salt Lake into a 2-2 tie with Philadelphia.

Salt Lake created a 1-1 draw with 15 minutes remaining when Luis Gil scored while his team was playing a man down. Philadelphia then regained the lead a minute later on a goal from Conor Casey.

The Union let the victory get away, however, when Raymond Gaddis was called for a handball inside the penalty area. Morales converted to run Salt Lake's unbeaten streak to seven games.

Salt Lake (10-5-4) moved two points in front of Dallas for the lead in the Western Conference, although Dallas has two games in hand.

Philadelphia (7-5-6) is tied for third in the East with Kansas City, which played to a 1-1 tie with Vancouver on Wednesday.
