RSL Giant Killers Yet Again

Real Salt Lake recorded their second win of the season in MLS, and third including friendlies with a 1-0 victory over league leaders Houston. Real Salt Lake, in last place in both the West and MLS overall recorded its only other victory of the MLS season over defending Supporter’s Shield Winner DC United in June and defeated EPL side Everton 2-0 last month, the only victory for an MLS club over a first division British club this summer. Houston had not lost an MLS or Superliga match since early May, a streak of 14 consecutive games. Elsewhere, FC Dallas behind a strong goalkeeping effort by Ray Burse Jr. shutout inept Colorado 1-0 and moved within 1 point of the overall lead in MLS and the Western Conference currently held by Houston. In a hugely anticipated match Chicago and Columbus drew 0-0 in front of a near sellout crowd at Toyota Park. Columbus continues to get results away from home which bodes well for their long term playoff prospects.

    RSL has done this for three seasons. They beat the better teams and get whacked by the teams they compete with. Nothing new.

  2. Eplnfl says:

    I did see the Houston game and they continue to impress me. I thought the game was well played and a joy to watch. Is it just me or is the MLS becoming a good league to watch. Maybe not the EPL but better than the Championship.

    Also, while I never have been a Max Brentos basher he was just terrible last night coming out with lines to describe the action that had no relation to the game at all.
