SAN JOSE, Calif. — Javier Morales scored his ninth goal in 15 career matches against San Jose as Real Salt Lake beat the Earthquakes 1-0 in MLS on Sunday.

Real Salt Lake, which moved up to third place on the Western Conference table, is one of only two MLS clubs without a loss so far this season, along with the New York Red Bulls.

Morales’ free kick in the 44th minute deflected off the wall and he found an opening for his second goal of the season.

In Sunday’s other game, Sporting Kansas City rallied to beat winless Philadelphia 3-2 as Jalil Anibaba and Krisztian Nemeth scored in second-half stoppage time.

Anibaba headed in the equalizer in the 91st and Nemeth redirected a corner in the 94th.

It was just the seventh time in MLS history that a team has won after entering stoppage time behind.
