Real Salt Lake 1, San Jose Earthquakes 1 | 2018 MLS Match Recap
Real Salt Lake had a chance to win on the final play, but a header hit the bar on a bounce. They saw a six-match home win streak end, while San Jose are winless in seven straight games including three draws.
Midfielder Kyle Beckerman started his 300th career MLS match, the only field player in league history to reach that milestone with a single club.
- THE BIG PICTURE: The Earthquakes have to be quite satisfied with a draw and until the closing seconds of the match, when Marcelo Silva was inches from ripping away two points, was the better team after tying the score at 1. That will help morale going into the California Clasico next week. On the other side, RSL could have put the game away much earlier but failed to capitalize on many chances. This one will sting Real Salt Lake for a bit, though they do get two of the next three matches at home, where they continue to be almost invincible.
MOMENT OF THE MATCH: Silva's header was that moment, and came at the death.

MAN OF THE MATCH: Rusnak almost had two assists when his corner fell to Silva at the end, and Hoesen was electric as the Quakes found their stride late. But Andrew Tarbell's seven saves kept San Jose alive for points, so the honor is his.
