Columbus Crew's Ethan Finlay denied Real Salt Lake the chance to move within two points of MLS Western Conference leaders Seattle Sounders on Wednesday.

Luis Gil set the Sandy franchise on a course to make up serious ground on the Sounders with his 51st-minute opener, but Finlay climbed off the bench to level the game at 1-1 with a goal after 88 minutes.

In the Eastern Conference, Colorado Rapids and Chicago Fire shared a goalless draw at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
