SANDY, Utah (AP) — Javier Morales scored on a penalty kick in the closing seconds of stoppage time to lift Real Salt Lake to a 2-2 draw with the Philadelphia Union on Wednesday night.

Luis Gil also had a goal as Salt Lake (10-5-4) extended its unbeaten streak to 11 matches, including US Open Cup play, while outscored opponents 27-9.

Conor Casey had a goal and an assist, and Sebastien Le Toux also scored for the Union (7-5-6), winless in six matches against Salt Lake.

Morales earned a penalty kick after Raymon Gaddis was called for a handball. Morales bounced the ball off the right post and sent it inside the left post to seal Salt Lake's comeback.
