COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Real Salt Lake and the Colorado Rapids each scored own goals Thursday night, the first time in Major League Soccer history that all the scoring in a 1-1 tie came from own goals.
The first goal came in the fourth minute when the Rapids' Herculez Gomez cross pass bounced off of Real defender Jack Stewart and into the Real net. Eleven minutes later, a Freddy Adu cross went off of Pablo Mastroeni into his own goal for the other score of the night.
Nine games in MLS history have had two own goals, with teams scoring one each six of those times.
Colorado maintains its lead in the Western Conference with a 2-2-2 record, while Real remains winless at 0-2-4.
