Three stoppage time goals turned what looked to be a 1-0 Real Salt Lake victory into a 2-2 tie as the Los Angeles Galaxy scored both goals in extra time to stay unbeaten on the road.

Robbie Findley's header goal looked to be the winner for RSL before handball in the area gave Landon Donovan a game-tying penalty kick in the 91st minute. RSL found a go-ahead goal just a minute later after a clear penalty call on Bryan Jordan for bringing down Fabian Espindola. Will Johnson converted the PK to give RSL a 2-1 lead.

That would have been the game-winner if not for Mike Magee, who pounced on a deflected shot and slotted a tight-angled shot through the legs of Chris Seitz for a last-ditch equalizer. Here is Magee's equalizer:

Here are some other results from Wednesday night's action:

D.C. ties KC

Josh Wolff nailed a 52nd minute equalizer to help give the Kansas City Wizards a 1-1 tie vs. visiting D.C. United on Wednesday night. The goal canceled out a first-half strike from rookie midfielder Rodney Wallace.

Playing without Ben Olsen, and with Christian Gomez and Luciano Emilo starting out on the bench, D.C. United drew first blood with Wallace's second goal of the season off a nice passing combination by Jaime Moreno and Santino Quaranta. Wolff equalized with quality sliding finish, and a great goal celebration with Wizards fans.

Toronto FC downs Whitecaps

Toronto FC needed a Kevin Harmes goal to edge the Vancouver Whitecaps, 1-0, in the opening match of the Nutrilite Canadian Championships at BMO Field in Toronto.

TFC is looking to win the Canadian championship and qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League for the first time. Toronto was beaten out by the Montreal Impact in last year's tournament.

What did you think of these results? Impressed with the Galaxy's comeback? Think the handball call on Johnson was bad? Will Toronto qualify for the Champions League this year?
