Late Borchers winner leads RSL to victory

Real Salt Lake saw two leads disappear and looked destined to settle for a point against FC Dallas on Saturday.

Then Nat Borchers delivered a stoppage-time finish any forward, let alone centerback, would be proud off.

Borchers struck a close-range shot into the top corner of the net in the third minute of second-half stoppage time to give Real Salt Lake a 3-2 victory at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday night.

Alvaro Saborio notched two goals on the night for an RSL side playing without Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando (who were on U.S. national team duty), but Dallas answered after each finish, with Blas Perez tying things up in the 85th minute.

Borchers finally found the winner, pouncing on the loose ball and calmy striking a curling shot into the far corner to give RSL all three points.

Here are the match highlights:
