SANDY, Utah — Jordan Allen scored in the 89th minute and Real Salt Lake picked up its first win of the season, beating Toronto FC 2-1 on Sunday.

The 19-year-old's header from close range came off a feed from Javier Morales from the right wing.

It came just a minute after Toronto tied it at 1 when Jackson took a feed at the top of the box from Bright Dike and used a deft touch to sneak it past an outstretched Jeff Attinella.

Real Salt Lake (1-0-2) opened the scoring in the 38th minute, when Luke Mullholland got behind the defense inside the 6-yard box and headed home a long feed from Morales.

Both teams had apparent goals waived off. RSL lost one to an offsides call, and Toronto had one disallowed when Nick Hagglund was called for a foul.

Both teams missed several players off with their national teams, including U.S. players Nick Rimando for RSL and Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley for Toronto (1-2-0).
