Result: Late Rose strike guides Seattle to victory
Andy Rose strikes in stoppage time to guide the Seattle Sounders to a 3-2 victory in their MLS clash over 10-man Real Salt Lake.

A late winner from Andy Rose has handed a 3-2 victory to the Seattle Sounders against 10-man Real Salt Lake in their MLS clash.

The home side should have taken the lead in the 20th minute when a loose ball fell into the path of Obafemi Martins six yards from goal, but his effort hit the bar and bounced clear.

Salt Lake went ahead as a long ball found Luke Mulholland down the right wing and he played a neat pass to find Javier Morales in the box, who fired a low shot into the bottom corner.

Martins was denied an instant equaliser by Nick Rimando as his blast from 10 yards was spectacularly tipped over the bar by the keeper.

However, Seattle did get their leveller with a strike from Lamar Neagle as his effort from distance beat the outstretched hand of Rimando to find the top corner.

The home side took the lead just before the break when Clint Dempsey released Martins in the box, and this time his low shot crept under Rimando and into the net.

In the second half, Real responded with the aid of luck when Joao Plata's shot from the edge of the area took a huge deflection, hit the post and rolled into the back of the net, beating Stefan Frei.

The game then turned again when Nat Borchers was given a straight red card for hauling down Martins as he raced through on goal.

Seattle couldn't make their man advantage count until Rose collected a pass from DeAndre Yedlin in stoppage time. The midfielder then fired his shot past Rimando into the bottom corner to earn his side the three points.
