CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – A weak-footed, top corner goal struck by Edgar Duran in the third minute of stoppage time proved to be the winner Tuesday for Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy U-17/18 in their quarterfinal showdown against Minnesota’s Shattuck-Saint Mary’s.

Despite going a man down early in the second half, it was Shattuck that scored the opening goal in the 67th minute thanks to a goal from Nazim Amokachi. RSL-AZ responded in the 79th minute, with Damian German providing the assist on Duran’s first goal of the day before his stunning game-winner lit up the SportsCenter Top 10.
