Salt Lake Gets It Right When It Counts

MOST COMMENTED

On a night with everything on the line, it all went right for Real Salt Lake. RSL put together a near perfect performance against its rivals, the Colorado Rapids, while every other result from around the league fell into place to give RSL a playoff berth. Robbie Findley scored twice in the first half and Yura Movsisyan added an insurance goal in the 85th minute.

Coach Jason Kreis called the 3-0 win a "fantastic performance." "It probably will go down as one of the best RSL games in the history of the franchise," he said. "The performance was second-to-none tonight, and so rewarding to see the players play that way when all the chips were on the table."

RSL also qualified for last season's playoffs with a pressured win against Colorado, winning in dramatic fashion with a stoppage-time goal from Movsisyan. But Kreis believes that this year's team is better poised for a playoff run. "The reason is because this year, in the most highest pressure situations, our team tended to play its best," he said. "For me, in five to eight --- maybe 10 -- games this year, we've shown, in my opinion, that we can win it all." RSL will face the reigning champions, the Columbus Crew, in the first round of the playoffs. Read the original story...
