SANDY, Utah (AP) - Olmes Garcia’s shot in the 93rd minute was redirected by Sporting Kansas City defender Kevin Ellis, giving Real Salt Lake a stunning 2-1 victory on Sunday night.

Real Salt Lake (5-5-6) entered the game with just two wins in the last 11 matches. It was the first loss for Sporting KC (6-3-6) since April 18 against the Los Angeles Galaxy, ending an eight-game unbeaten run.

Sebastian Jaime gave Real Salt Lake the early lead in the 15th minute with a header that glanced in off the bottom of the crossbar. It was the designated player’s first MLS goal in nine career starts and finished Javier Morales’ corner kick.

Dom Dwyer tied it in the 30th minute, running behind Benny Feilhaber’s pass for a right-footed finish from the middle of the box.

Dwyer nearly added another with a header in the 64th minute, but goalkeeper Nick Rimando’s save proved crucial to the victory.
