PORTLAND, Ore: Lucas Cavallini’s goal in the 75th minute was the winner as the Vancouver Whitecaps rallied to beat Real Salt Lake 2-1 on Saturday night and snapped a four-match losing streak.
Vancouver (6-11-0) scored twice in a four-minute span, tying the game at 1-all in the 71st minute on an own goal. Real Salt Lake’s Douglas Martinez tried to clear a free kick by Michael Baldisimo with a header and instead sent the ball into his own net.

Damir Kreilach opened the scoring, converting a feed from Justin Meram from close range in the 37th minute for Real Salt Lake (4-7-6).
