Yura Movsisyan scored twice and Real Salt Lake took advantage of an own goal by FC Dallas' Daniel Torres to rally from a two-goal deficit and earn a 4-2 victory Friday night.
With the score tied at 2, Real Salt Lake (6-7-5) took the lead when Fabian Espindola's cross hit off Torres and into the goal.
Movsisyan added his second goal of the match in stoppage time to seal the win over FC Dallas (4-9-5).
Trailing 2-0 at halftime, Real Salt Lake cut FC Dallas' lead in half in the 55th minute when Movsisyan beat Dallas goalkeeper Ray Burse on a one-on-one.
Robbie Findley pulled RSL even in the 62nd minute with a penalty kick after being fouled in the box by Jair Benitez.
Jeff Cunningham scored a goal and assisted on another against his former team for FC Dallas, but missed a second-half penalty kick.
Cunningham's 13th-minute goal was the 108th of his career, moving him into a tie for third all-time with Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis. He still trails D.C. United's Jaime Moreno (128) and Chivas USA's Ante Razov (114).
Kreis was Cunningham's teammate for four games in 2007 before retiring to become coach and quickly traded the forward to Toronto FC.
Dave van der Bergh gave FC Dallas a 2-0 lead in the 21st minute when Cunningham passed the ball to David Ferreira, who sent the ball across the goal box to van der Bergh.
Cunningham had a couple opportunities to pass Kries, with the best coming on a penalty kick in the 71st minute after Salt Lake defender Chris Wingert was called for a handball in the box.
Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando, though, saved Cunningham's attempt.
Kreis was ejected from the match in the 73rd minute for verbally abusing the fourth official. FC Dallas' Drew Moor was ejected in stoppage time after a hard foul on Tony Beltran.
