It was a disappointing night for RSL fans who watched RSL come up short on another opportunity to win a trophy at home. Just like in 2008 against New York and 2011 against Monterey, the winning score would be 1-0, and the winning goal would be scored late in the first half. RSL threw everything at DC in the second half in attempts to get the equalizer, and had some good looks, but could not convert those chances.
RSL will have to bounce back quickly as they take on FC Dallas in another home match on Saturday, October 5th. Game time is set for 7:00 pm MT. RSL still has an opportunity to win the Supporters Shield and the MLS Cup. RSL is currently tied with Seattle for second place in the Supporters Shield race with 51 points, 1 point behind New York, and tied for first in the Western Conference.
Tickets for the match against Dallas are available online, or by calling 801.727.2700.
