Williams Playing Mystic During RSL's Playoff Run
Salt Lake Tribune , October 26th, 2009 4PM

MOST READ


Don't question Real Salt Lake's Andy Williams of late. Like he forecast a goal in his previous home game, Williams predicted on his Facebook page that he would provide two assists for Real Salt Lake in Saturday's 3-0 win over Colorado, a win that vaulted RSL into the MLS playoffs.

Williams helped create two goals for striker Robbie Findley, who found his scoring touch after nearly two dry months. "I was feeling confident this whole week," Findley said. "Started the game, so it felt good. Felt good to get two goals." Findley, who started only two of the last seven games, notched his 12th goal of the season, a new career high.

Findley scored both of his goals in the first half. Williams set up the first with a chip to Fabian Espindola, who controlled it with his chest and flicked the ball ahead to Findley, who finished with a header. The second also came off a long ball from Williams, which Findley ran onto, deftly flicked over the head of Rapids goalkeeper Preston Burpo, and slotted home. "He's been on fire in training," Williams said of Findley. "All our forwards, they've been pretty sick in training. ... I figured if I got them in a goal-scoring position, they would finish tonight."
