Sky Blue were on the brink of their first win of the season, until an extra time stunner from Utah Royals FC forward Amy Rodriguez sealed the game at 2-2.

Sky Blue scored first on the night thanks to a 14th minute goal from forward Katie Johnson. This was Sky Blue’s second lead ever this year. Johnson then scored her second on the evening to kick off the second half. Her brace wasn’t enough as Utah responded forcing an own goal in the 58th minute from Sky Blue defender Dominique Richardson. Rodriguez finished in the 94th minute to earn Utah a point on the road and spoil Sky Blue from their first win of the year.

Sky Blue are now 0-14-5 with five points and Utah are 7-7-8 with 29 points. The tie puts Utah in sixth place in the league standings, tied in points with the Houston Dash. Utah has two more games to keep their playoff hopes alive, while Sky Blue is out of playoff contention.

Johnson opened up scoring for Sky Blue after a tough battle in the box between Utah defender Rachel Corsie and Sky Blue forward Carli Lloyd bounced into the path of midfielder Raquel Rodriguez who slipped in Johnson. Johnson slotted the ball home far post past Nicole Barnhart for her third goal of the season.

After the half, Johnson scored again for the home team, this time assisting herself with a cheeky chip over a Utah defender. Johnson attempted to play a pass into Imani Dorsey, but the ball deflected back into her own path. Johnson then struck it into the upper 90 to make it 2-0. Johnson finished the game with three shots.

Johnson almost had herself a hat trick, but her left footed shot in the 49th minute kissed the crossbar.

A lightening weather delay in the match played into the favor of Utah once the match commenced and in the 57th minute an Amy Rodriguez shot bounced off the foot of forward Katie Stengel and then off of Richardson for a Sky Blue FC own goal.

Utah continued to press, knowing that a point would be crucial in their hopes to make the playoffs. In extra time, Sky Blue had all their numbers back trying to keep the lead, but chaos in the box ended up in the foot of Rodriguez after Press laid it off. Rodriguez struck it one time to make it 2-2. Rodriguez now has three goals on the year and finished the game with five shots and one key pass.

Sky Blue goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan made five saves and Utah goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart made one.

Sky Blue will next face Portland Thorns FC on the road on Wednesday and Utah will also travel on Wednesday to face the Washington Spirit.
