They Did It!

Posted by

Oh yeah, the Real Salt Lake soccer team burst into the realm of the elites when they beat reigning champs,The Galaxy 5-4 on penalty kicks.  Regulation time ended with the score tied at 1-1 taking the teams into a round of penalty kicks which would determine the winner.  Both teams sputtered a bit when their respective star players each missed on their goal attempts.  Landon Donovan was visibly annoyed with his miss which went over the top of the goal.  Reals’ Kyle Beckerman also missed at his goal attempt but was vindicated by Robbie Russells’ game winning kick.  Goalkeeper, Nick Romando came up big for the Real with three saves during the penalty shootout.  Totally awesome game!! This should boost ticket sales for the team as well as broader interest in this great sport.
