Real Salt Lake

Maya's soccer coach gave her two vouchers for a Real Salt Lake game.

We had a lot fun watching the last game of the regular season.

RSL was struggling to make it into the post season and really needed to win this game against the Colorado Rapids.

RSL put on a great show for us by winning 3-0 then we caught a soccer ball at the end of the game.

RSL was able to advance to the post season and are actually in the Eastern Conference finals since there were not enough teams in the East that had good enough record to advance to the playoffs.

RSL played Columbus in two semi-final games with the team scoring the most aggregate goals would move on to the Eastern Conference final. Again they did awesome by wining both games and upsetting the best team in the League and the League Champions from last year.

On to Chicago. I don't think anyone thought they would get past Chicago. But RSL didn't listen. The score was tied 0-0 at the end of regulation, and tied 0-0 at the overtime then they had to go to a shoot-out.

Real Salt Lake won the game with 5 PKs to Chicago's 4!!!

Way to go RSL! Eastern Conference Champs!

One week later RSL played LA Galaxy in the Major League Soccer Finals!

The DVR was set to record the game since our schedules did not synch up. At 10PM I began to watch a pretty great game. RSL and LA have been closely matched in the regular season and they again battled back and forth during this game.

LA scored first then during the second half RSL tied it up and remained tied through end of regulation time. Thirty minutes of overtime began and then the DVR stopped.


I had to search to find out what happened.
Another shoot out!
And another 5-4 WIN!

O-le . . . Ole, Ole, Ole . . . Re-al Salt Lake!

Way to go RSL!
