BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) Joao Plata scored twice in the final 24 minutes, including the winner in stoppage time, to help Real Salt Lake remain unbeaten with a 3-2 victory over the winless Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

Alvaro Saborio tied it 1 second into stoppage time for Real Salt Lake (4-0-5). Plata, who cut the Fire's lead in half with a 12-yard shot in the 72nd minute, beat Chicago's Sean Johnson with the winner in the 93rd minute, halfway through stoppage time.

The Fire (0-2-6) scored twice in the first 30 minutes. Mike Magee and Juan Luis Anangono beat Real's Nick Rimando from close range, with Anangono doing so on a pretty header set up by Greg Cochrane.
