MLS REGULAR SEASON – RSL @ VANCOUVER – SATURDAY, JULY 16, 2011 LATE DRAMA PART OF RSL DNA: MF Will

TIME FOR A NEW STREAK: In Major League

Johnson‟s 87‟ game-winning goal vs. Chivas way back on th May 7 marked the 16 all-time go-ahead scored by RSL in the final 15 minutes of a regular-season MLS or CCL game … Two of the three RSL goals scored prior to that – Espindola‟s 93+ game-winner v COL and Morales‟ late equalizer at Monterrey – also meet the dramatic criteria … All-time lists for equalizers and GWG (active players in bold):

Soccer‟s 16-year history, there have been 25 double-digit unbeaten regular-season streaks for its teams … Real Salt Lake’s historic 2010 season saw the squad amass runs of both 10 and 14 games, with the mid-April win vs. Colorado extending the latter streak to 18 games without a loss, one of the top three streaks in MLS history, just one game shy of matching the League standard …

A year ago, FC Dallas matched the Columbus Crew’s 19-game run by not losing for 4 ½ months, then saw it crash to a halt by dropping an 0-2 decision at Rio Tinto Stadium … Dallas had the last laugh, however, ousting RSL in the teams‟ first-round MLS Cup Playoff matchup with a 3-2 aggregate win in October … The list: ALL-TIME MLS TEAM UNDEFEATED STREAK LEADERS TEAM
