MAYDAY, MAYDAY: 12-MONTH RUN OF SUCCESS ON MULTIPLE FRONTS: Despite the pair of difficult 0-1 losses vs. Monterrey and at Portland in the final week of April, Real Salt Lake performed exceptionally in the 45 games played between May 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011, losing only six times in that stretch, the rough equivalent of a season-and-a-half … Across MLS regular season, MLS Cup Playoff and CONCACAF Champions League games, Jason Kreis‟ team posted an impressive mark of 26-6-13 and outscored opponents 75-33 since May 1, 2010 … RSL would have earned 91 points in this stretch … The MLS equivalents: (reg.-season games only) TEAM Los Angeles Galaxy D.C.

Prior to last April 30 at Portland, the lone MLS losses both came on the road at Dallas on July 17 and Oct. 30, sandwiched around the bizarre 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul … The fourth loss was the 1-2 decision at Saprissa which enabled RSL to advance to the CCL Final … RSL then dropped the 0-1 home game to Monterrey to snap the 37-game “all-competition” Rio Tinto Stadium streak …

“EQUALITY GOLD” RUNS OUT: RSL wore its sord

called “Victory Gold” 3 kits for the fifth time in team history at Dallas last Tuesday in Open Cup play, the 0-2 result marking the first time the Utah side did not at least share the spoils while wearing the standout uniforms … The true test of the “Equality Gold” standard was set on May 22, when RSL got its first-ever point in Dallas from a scoreless draw at Pizza Hut Park … Last year, RSL drew 1-1 @ KC and 1-1 @ PHI in a pair of August games in the Real Gold uniforms, while in this season‟s other previous display of sartorial splendor, Jason Kreis‟ team drew 2-2 at Monterrey in the first leg of the 2010/11 CCL Final … For the first time ever, the uniforms lived up to their name, RSL winning 2-0 at home on June 28 over Wilmington … Expect to see the “Equality Gold” kits once again perhaps on the late September trip to New York and Washington, D.C. …
