CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – The Real Salt Lake U-17 team defeated English club Stoke City U-17 on penalties after the both sides traded stoppage time goals on Tuesday night in the second match of the final round of the 2013-14 Generation Adidas Cup.
Real Salt Lake U-17 was trailing midway through the second half when substitute Leo Fuchs scored an equalizer after the ball bounced out to him on the left side. Stoke City then scored what looked to be the match winning goal seconds into stoppage time.
Trailing yet again, RSL U-17 pushed for another goal, and that came from Tate Schmitt, who collected a Justen Glad bomb from midway. Schmitt cut to his left, and fired a low screamer that went into the back of the net.
Real Salt Lake U-17 outlasted Stoke City on penalties, and need a victory over LA Galaxy on Thursday to secure a semifinal spot.
