REAL SALT LAKE vs PORTLAND TIMBERS RIO TINTO STADIUM, Sandy, Utah 7 p.m. MT (ROOT-NW)

October 22, 2011 (WEEK 32; MLS Game 303)

Real Salt Lake and the Portland Timbers bring down the curtain on the 2011 regular season when they meet Saturday evening at Rio Tinto Stadium. Real come into the game tied for third in the Western Conference after a scoreless draw at the Colorado Rapids; they must at least match the result of FC Dallas in San Jose if they are to avoid a wild card game. By kickoff, the Timbers narrowly missed out on qualifying for the MLS Cup Playoffs as an expansion club, eliminated after New York’s win Thursday after a 1-1 draw at D.C. United kept them in the chase the night before. REFEREE: Silviu Petrescu.

REAL SALT LAKE Real Salt Lake put an end to their losing skid at four games, playing to a scoreless draw with the Colorado Rapids on Friday evening at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. RSL is in third place in the Western Conference, with 52 points from 33 matches. LAST MATCH  The Rapids held the better of the chances in the hard-fought rivalry match. They had 12 attempts at goal, and Real goalkeeper Nick Rimando was called upon to make four saves.  RSL by contrast did not have a single attempt on the goal protected by Colorado goalkeeper Matt Pickens. The teams combined for 36 fouls for the game.  RSL head coach Jason Kreis made four changes to the team that dropped a 3-0 decision to Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place. Robbie Russell came in to the back four for Chris Schuler, Yordany Alvarez started in midfield in place of Ned Grabavoy, and Fabian Espindola and Alvaro Saborio returned as the strike partnership, replacing Collen Warner and Paulo Jr.  REAL SALT LAKE (4-3-1-2): Nick Rimando - Robbie Russell, Jamison Olave, Nat Borchers, Chris Wingert Andy Williams, Yordany Alvarez, Luis Gil (Jean Alexandre 93+) - Javier Morales - Fabian Espindola, Alvaro Saborio.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


TEAM NEWS  Real Salt Lake played to a draw for the first time since July 4 in their scoreless result with Colorado last weekend. In their 16 league games since, they were 8-8.  “We’ve got so many things going wrong I think it’s important to try to focus on one thing and build from that. For me that was this week, competing as a team, showing some pride and getting back to all the defensive details that we built this team upon,” said RSL head coach Jason Kreis. “So to see them walk out of (Colorado) with a nil-nil draw, shutout, that means something to us and we’ll look to build on it in the next week.”  RSL put an end to their losing slide at four games – one short of the MLS season-long and the club’s longest since 2007.  “That’s what we needed,” said Kreis. “We needed to start from the foundation of how we built this team. We needed to get back to the basics. We needed to get back to the details of defending together as a unit.”  Real recorded their 14th shutout of the season, level with the LA Galaxy for the most in MLS. For Nick Rimando, it was his 13th clean sheet of the season, taking over the league lead from FC Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman.  “We keep on saying we need to get back to getting our zeros and shutouts and just pay attention to details. We took a look at tape this week and I think we pointed out a lot of things we weren’t doing right and I think we corrected (in Colorado),” said Rimando. “It’s definitely a plus and I want to say it feels like a win but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.”  For only the second time in the club’s seven-year history, Real were held without a shot on goal for the full 90 minutes. The other occasion also occurred at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, on May 2, 2009 in a 0-2 defeat.  “I think it’s something we don’t really need to worry about. I think we just keep our group out there together and get some more time for our attacking-minded players like Javier [Morales], Fabian [Espindola] and [Alvaro] Saborio spending more time together,” said Kreis. “We won’t have to deal with international call-ups, I don’t think we withstood any suspensions and I don’t think we withstood any injuries so perhaps a little consistency will help us next week.”  With a victory, Real will be assured of finishing third in the Western Conference and avoiding a midweek wild card game next week. RSL and FC Dallas can finish tied for third on points, but Real hold the tiebreaker by virtue of their win and draw in the two head-to-head meetings this season.  “[We] now put ourselves in a position where we control our own destiny at home. We pick up the three points, and we guarantee ourselves third place in the conference, third place in the league, and that’s exactly where we need to be right now,” Kreis said. PORTLAND TIMBERS The Portland Timbers kept their bid for a place in the MLS Cup Playoffs into the final week, gaining a 1-1 draw with D.C. United on Wednesday evening at RFK Stadium. The Timbers have 43 points from 33 games, in sixth place in the Western Conference. LAST MATCH  Portland struck first in the 24th minute. Defender Rodney Wallace provided the service from the left, looping in a cross that found the head of Kenny Cooper, and he nodded home past United goalkeeper Bill Hamid at the near post.  United drew even in the 72nd minute. Dwayne De Rosario received a Josh Wolff pass with his back to goal at the top of the box, pivoted on defender Eric Brunner, and unleashed a left-footed shot that beat Timbers goalkeeper Troy Perkins inside his right post.  That set the stage for some late drama as United tried to stay alive. D.C.’s Blake Brettschneider had a possible game-winning goal waved off for offside, then De Rosario beat Perkins to a flick and rounded the 'keeper, only to have a sure goal blocked by Brunner. Deeper into stoppage time Joseph Ngwenya had a last-gasp effort saved by Perkins, who then was able to spring up and block the follow-up effort as well.  Timbers coach John Spencer made three changes to the team that suffered a 2-0 loss to the Houston Dynamo at Jeld-Wen Field. Rodney Wallace came in at left back for Mike Chabala, and James Marcelin and Eric Alexander came into the midfield for the injured Sal Zizzo and Darlington Nagbe.  PORTLAND TIMBERS (4-2-3-1): Troy Perkins - Lovel Palmer, Mamadou Danso, Eric Brunner, Rodney Wallace (Mike Chabala 79) - James Marcelin, Diego Chara - Eric Alexander (Brian Umony 63), Jack Jewsbury, Kalif Alhassan - Kenny Cooper (Bright Dike 84) TEAM NEWS  The Timbers would have survived to the final weekend regardless of the result in Washington, but New York’s narrow home win Thursday evening means they have been eliminated from contention for the MLS Cup Playoffs.  “Two teams were just gambling trying to get that win because both of us felt that we needed it. [D.C. United] probably needed it a little bit more than us obviously because they had to win to keep their season alive. We have to go to Salt Lake this weekend and try to get a result there,” said Timbers head coach John Spencer.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


      

The Timbers uncorked 22 total attempts at goal, a season-high. “[D.C United] was coming out leaving four or five guys up high and just trying to defend with three or four guys. We knew it was coming. It was a big hectic and a bit crazy, but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do,” said goalkeeper Troy Perkins. “A point on the road is a point on the road, but now we just have to go and hopefully the result [Thursday] goes our way and we can go and get a result against Salt Lake,” said Perkins. The Timbers have taken points from back-to-back road games for the first time in their inaugural campaign, and are 1-1-2 in their last four games away from Jeld-Wen Field, defeating Vancouver Whitecaps FC (Oct. 2) and drawing Philadelphia (Sept. 10) and D.C. United. Kenny Cooper has scored the last three goals Portland has netted, and has hit the back of the net in four of the last six games. The Timbers have taken points from each of those four games (2-0-2). “We got off to a good start going up 1-0 into halftime. Obviously we wanted to get three points out of this game, we’ll take the one point and keep pushing forward and keep believing and continuing with the same attitude and approach that we applied to the game tonight,” said Cooper. With Darlington Nagbe and Sal Zizzo out of the lineup through injury, Spencer changed his tactics, moving Jack Jewsbury higher into the midfield and putting out Cooper as a target striker. Defender Rodney Wallace made his first start since Aug. 17 at Sporting KC. “I think this team has a lot of depth. We lost two quality players in Darlington [Nagbe] and Sal [Zizzo] not being here, but Eric Alexander stepped in and did a fantastic job. Rodney [Wallace] came in and played incredible and had a good assist,” said Cooper. “So, this team is really strong and really deep and is capable of doing different things and playing in different formations.” The Timbers were looking to become the fourth expansion team (created from an expansion draft) to reach the MLS Cup Playoffs, joining the Chicago Fire and Miami Fusion in 1998, and Seattle Sounders FC in 2009.

MLS REGULAR SEASON GAME #34 – 2011 RSL GAME #42

Real Salt Lake

(15-11-7, 52 pts, t-3rd in West)

vs. Portland Timbers

TV: RADIO:

(11-14-8, 41 pts, 6th in West) Saturday, October 22, 2011 – Rio Tinto Stadium – Sandy, UT – 7:00 p.m. MT

MLS Direct Kick Package w/ John Strong & Robbie Earle ESPN700 Sports Radio w/ Spencer Warne & Brian Kamler America First Credit Union Pre-Game Show @ 6:00 p.m. w/ Spencer Checketts & Trey Fitz-Gerald Juan 106.1 FM / ESPN-Deportes 1600 AM w/ Nelson Moran & Fernando Hortal

PROBABLE STARTERS 10/22 v PORTLAND RSL (4-4-2 diamond, R  L): GK: Rimando DF: Russell, Olave, Borchers, Wingert MF: Y. Alvarez; Williams, Gil; Morales; FW: Espíndola, Saborío

CRITICAL 3 POINTS NEEDED IN HOME FINALE: RSL returns home to Rio Tinto Stadium on the final regular-season weekend with a victory needed over the visiting Portland Timbers in order to clinch the #3 overall seed in the West and confirm a Conference Semifinal series with Seattle Sounders FC in the 2011 MLS Cup Playoffs, with games slated for Sat., Oct. 29 and Wed., Nov. 2 … Should RSL stumble by dropping points with a tie or loss against expansion Portland – fighting for a playoff berth until Thursday’s NY win – the door opens for FC Dallas to surpass RSL and move into the #3 overall seed, forcing RSL to host an MLS Cup Playoff Wild Card game against the #10 overall seed on Wednesday, Oct. 26 … Last week, RSL snapped a four-game losing streak with a 0-0 draw at Colorado, giving Head Coach Jason Kreis’ team its fifth consecutive Rocky Mountain Cup title over the rival Rapids, as GK Nick Rimando and the RSL defense notching its first shutout since a home Sept. 17 win over Kansas City … Saturday’s match at Rio Tinto Stadium kicks off at 7:00 p.m. MT, with the match televised live nationwide via the MLS Direct Kick package and MLSsoccer.com’s MatchDay Live subscription … Fans can also follow over the air on RSL’s official radio partners, with Rock 99.1 FM carrying the ESPN 700 Sports feed and ESPN Deportes 1600 AM / Juan 106.1 FM in Spanish …

RSL INJURY REPORT (as of 10/19/11) OUT: MF Nelson González (R foot fracture) DOUBTFUL: DF Tony Beltran (L adductor strain) QUESTIONABLE: MF Will Johnson (R ankle sprain) PROBABLE: FW Chris Agorsor (L hamstring strain), MF Ned Grabavoy (L adductor strain), GK Kyle Reynish (R ankle bone spur)

#3 OVERALL SEED, RANGE OF IMPLICATIONS: Why is the #3 seed so critical to RSL? First, finishing in that slot gives the Claret-and-Cobalt a 75% chance of returning to next year’s CONCACAF Champions League, as Los Angeles (Supporters Shield) and Seattle (US Open Cup Champion) are already qualified … Should one of those two teams advance to MLS Cup, next in line for the duplicate 2012-13 CCL spot created by Cup participation is the overall MLS #3 seed – either RSL or FC Dallas … Second, the automatic MLS Cup Playoff berth earned by the #3 overall seed also allows RSL to avoid the 5 games in 15 days that would be needed to for a Wild Card seed to advance to MLS Cup on Nov. 20 …

ANOTHER AIM AT HISTORY FOR RSL: A win

Saturday against Portland would give RSL the distinction as the team with the highest HOME winning percentage over any four-season span … RSL and Columbus would both boast a total of 39 wins from 2008-11, but RSL would end the 62-game run with half as many losses (5) as the Crew (10) … The list, courtesy Elias Sports Bureau: Most HOME wins over 4 seasons [since elimination of OT (2004–11)]: 39 2008-2011 Columbus (39-10-13, .734) 38 2008-2011 Real Salt Lake (38-5-18, .771) 37 2004-2007 D.C. United (37-12-13, .702) 34 2006-2009 Houston (34-8-19, .713) 34 2008-2011 Los Angeles (34-12-16, .677)


REAL SALT LAKE v PORTLAND TIMBERS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 ANOTHER SELLOUT IN THE OFFING?: Real Salt Lake expects another capacity crowd at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday night of 20,000+ against the visiting Portland Timbers … The sellout would mark RSL’s third consecutive full building entering the 2011 MLS Cup Playoffs, and the franchise-high seventh of one season (six MLS games, one CCL match) … With anticipated sellouts coming in the Playoffs and in the 2012 season opener, the Utah market has emphatically stated that MLS and RSL are not only relevant but celebrated in this community … A list of all-time Rio Tinto Stadium sellouts for RSL / MLS: Date

PDX REWIND: RSL SUFFERS CCL HANGOVER: Back on April 30 in Real Salt Lake’s first-ever foray with Portland at Jeld-Wen Field, RSL dropped an 0-1 decision in the midst of suffering from the after-effects of the 0-1 loss just three days prior in the CONCACAF Champions nd League Final 2 Leg at home to Monterrey, the team’s dreams of being continental champions shattered by a late first-half goal from Humberto Suazo that ended RSL’s vaunted home dominance at 37 games … Against Portland, with some first-choice players missing (Espindola, Johnson, Olave and Williams) and others reeling from disappointment at the lost opportunity, it was another late first-half goal – this time by Timbers FW Kenny Cooper – that doomed RSL … In the second half, RSL picked up its possession percentage yet was unable to create any real scoring chances … Including that loss at Portland, RSL won just twice in a 10-game span following the Monterrey disappointment, posting a 2-3-5 mark in MLS matches …

TIMBERS TIES: Portland drafted two RSL players in last November’s MLS Expansion Draft, taking former RSL players DF David Horst and FW Robbie Findley … Horst was originally drafted by RSL in 2008 out of Old Dominion and spent 2010 on loan to Puerto Rico Islanders (USSF Div. II) … While Findley had announced his intentions to pursue Europe – now featuring for Nottingham Forest of the English First Division – RSL found his replacement via a same-day trade with the Timbers, selecting current M/F Arturo Alvarez from San Jose in the Expansion Draft and nd sending him to RSL for a 2 –round pick – one that RSL had originally acquired from Chivas USA in the Carey Talley deal back in 2008 … ROCKY MOUNTAIN CUP REWIND: Last game out,

RSL headed east to Colorado to resume the most intense rivalry in Major League Soccer – the Rocky Mountain Cup – which reached new heights this season, the trophy contested by the two most recent MLS Cup Champions … The teams’ 0-0 draw last Friday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park enabled RSL to retain the fan-created RMCup for the fifth consecutive season, allowing RSL Captain Kyle Beckerman to continue the unique distinction as the only player to have hoisted all seven editions of the Cup (2005-06 with Colorado, 2007-present with RSL) … While Beckerman did not play last Friday due to the MLSimposed suspension following the Sept. 28 red card vs Chicago, RSL saw the third consecutive start and the fourth consecutive appearance by MF Javier Morales, the team’s 2010 MVP and a 2010 MLS Best XI selection … Morales – out from May 7 to Sept. 28 due to the ankle fracture / dislocation suffered following a bad Marco Mondaini tackle against Chivas USA – has played 260 of RSL’s last 270 minutes, seeking to remove the rust from his form and get on the same page as his teammates entering the 2011 MLS Cup Playoffs …

CLEAN SHEET RETURN TO RSL REPETOIRE:

RSL’s commitment to defense rewarded GK Nick st Rimando with his 51 career shutout with the club, snapping a five-game span without a clean sheet, the longest endured by RSL since April of 2010 … The “zero” th th was Rimando’s league-high 13 of the season and the 14 overall by RSL (Reynish, April 9), second only to Los Angeles’ collection of 17 clean sheets by Ricketts and Saunders this year … RSL’s recent skid – winless in five games since clinching a 2011 MLS Cup Playoff berth back on Sept. 21, with a 3-1 road W at NY – has seen the team’s defense allow 12 goals in its last 5 games, after allowing just 23 goals in the previous 28 … A year ago, RSL set the modern-day mark with 20 goals allowed in 30 games, eclipsing the 2007 Houston Dynamo mark of 23 goals allowed over the same span …


REAL SALT LAKE v PORTLAND TIMBERS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 DEFENSE THE BACKBONE OF RSL SUCCESS: RSL’s once-vaunted rearguard has now conceded 35 goals through 33 games, including the allowance of one goal or fewer in 21 of 33 MLS contests … The team boasted a league-low 0.82 GAA prior to the last five matches, including five PKs among the 35 total goals conceded … Last year, RSL allowed just 20 goals in the 30-game regular season, setting a new standard in MLS annals and breaking the 2007 Houston Dynamo record of 23 GA … Among RSL’s 15 wins through 33 games are five victories by a 1-0 count, emphasizing the critical nature of the team’s commitment to defense … With a game remaining this season, the 2011 total of five 1-0 wins is a season-record, and equals the combined total of 2010 (three) and 2009 (two) … th

The shutout at Colorado was Rimando’s 13 of the st season (Reynish, 4/9 @NE) and the 51 of his 142-game th RSL career, as well as the 87 of his 287 career MLS games with RSL (2007-present), D.C. United (2002-06) and Miami (2000-01) … Only current FC Dallas GK Kevin Hartman has more career “donuts” than Rimando, with 106 clean sheets in 385 games (19 add’l shutouts in 98 more games) … Each of the ‘keepers has a pair of MLS Cup rings …

CAN RSL SNAP 225-MIN SCORING DROUGHT?: The last time Real Salt Lake found the back of the net was FW Fabian Espindola’s late first-half header from a Javier Morales corner kick on Oct. 1 at Los Angeles, a span of 225 minutes ago … Since then, RSL has suffered shutouts at VAN and at COL, and in three of its last four games overall … nd

The scoring drought marks the 2 occasion this year that RSL has failed to score in 3 of 4 games, with donuts v Columbus and at Kansas City and at Toronto surrounding a 3-0 home W against New York in late July / early August … In fact, RSL has suffered back-to-back shutouts THREE times this season, after not facing that ignominy since May of 2009, a span of 76 games across all competitions …

LINEUP CAROUSEL CONTINUES … : On only ONE occasion in the last 70 games has Real Salt Lake Head Coach Jason Kreis been able to roll out the same starting XI as he had the previous week, that wonderful fate happening on Aug. 13 of this season in Toronto – in the th team’s 30 game in all competitions this season … Injuries, cards, suspensions, national team duty and fixture congestion had all conspired to prevent a duplicate lineup in back-to-back matches, something that has happened just once (on July 31/Aug. 7, 2010) – in a span of the last 70 MLS, CCL and Open Cup games …

ESPINDOLA MOVES INTO NEW TERRITORY:

RSL’s “other” FW, Fabian Espindola headed home a th Javier Morales corner kick in the 45 minute at LA on th October 1 for his 10 goal of the season, matching the output of his strike partner, Costa Rican international Alvaro Saborio … With the duo each notching 10 goals this season, RSL boasts a pair of double-digit scorers for the first time in its seven-season history … Espindola’s th goal was the 26 of his five-year RSL career, spanning 94 MLS games … A list of RSL’s single-season double-digit scorers: SINGLE-SEASON GOALS – RSL YEAR PLAYER 2011 Fabian Espindola Alvaro Saborio 2010 Alvaro Saborio 2009 Robbie Findley 2006 Jeff Cunningham

SABORIO SPECIAL FOR RSL STRIKE FORCE:

RSL’s predatory striker Álvaro Saborío also returned to the side at Colorado after missing the VAN game due to international duty, starting and playing 90 minutes in Costa Rica’s 0-1 home loss to Brazil … “Sabo” moved into the team’s 2011 scoring lead with his th 10 goal of the year on Sept. 24 at DC, coming off the bench to score his fourth goal in his last six MLS games – th and his 10 since June 25 – to put together just the fourth double-digit goal season in RSL’s seven season history (Jeff Cunningham, 16, 2006; Saborio, 12, 2010; Findley, 12, 2009; since joined by Espindola, 10, 2011) … nd

The early 2 -half game-winner on Sept. 10 at Seattle was th the 9 GWG for Saborio in his now 49 MLS games over st the last two seasons – placing him in a 1 place tie with Robbie Findley’s 9 game-winners in 96 career MLS games st – while the pinpoint header at NY was the 21 MLS goal overall for the Costa Rican international … “Sabo” was also RSL’s leading scorer during the historic CONCACAF Champions League run, scoring 8 goals in 11 games … When Saborío – the first DP in RSL’s seven-season history – finds the back of the net, Jason Kreis’ team is a dominating 19-2-4 in all competitions (only loss prior to 9/24 at DC was the rain-soaked 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul), compared to the 11-13-14 mark when he plays and does not score, as well as RSL’s 7-3-4 record when Sabo is unavailable …


REAL SALT LAKE v PORTLAND TIMBERS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 UNFAMILIAR RUN OF FORM FOR KREIS, RSL: With the October 6 loss at BC Place in Vancouver, RSL suffered its fourth consecutive MLS loss – something that has happened just once since Jason Kreis became head coach, back in July of 2007 … Four years ago, after just 10 MLS, U.S. Open Cup and exhibition games into Jason‟s career, during an active period of player movement in and out of Jason’s system, RSL suffered a home loss to Toronto FC on July 4, following that up with road losses at Columbus, at Kansas City and at New England … If you include all competitions, RSL had not lost three consecutive matches since May of 2008, when road losses at Colorado and Dallas were followed by an Open Cup loss at Columbus – the only previous time in Jason’s four full seasons at the helm with back-to-back-to-back losses …

HOLDING ON IN WESTERN RACE: Due to capturing

maximum points (15) over the five games from Aug. 28 – Sept. 21 – with extended losing streaks on either side – RSL gained minimal ground on Los Angeles … However, Jason Kreis’ side was able to leapfrog Western rivals Dallas and Colorado to vault into contention for the #2 / #3 seeds in the West, along with Seattle … Despite a year filled with the disappointment of the CONCACAF Champions League hangover, the loss of MF Javier Morales for nearly five months and a rapidly-spinning lineup carousel due to suspension, injury and national team duty, Real Salt Lake’s total of 52 points through 33 games marks the second-best season in club history, only five points behind last year’s club-record pace … Obviously, RSL teams will play 34 reg. season games this season … Season-ending totals during the Kreis era: YEAR 2011 2010 2009 2008

Ever since Real Salt Lake clinched an MLS Cup Playoff berth for the fourth consecutive season with its Sept. 21 win at New York, it has suffered four straight losses by a combined 2-12 aggregate, ending the team’s collective hopes in the 2011 MLS Supporters Shield race and placing pressure to earn 4 points in the final two games to ensure the #3 overall seed and the ability to potentially grab a duplicate CONCACAF berth, should LA (Supporters Shield) and Seattle (US Open Cup Champion) advance to MLS Cup …

ROAD WARRIORS CONTINUE TO STUMBLE: The draw at Colorado last Friday was RSL’s fourth consecutive winless performance on the road following the team’s three-game road win streak from Aug. 27-Sept. 21, matching the franchise high set back in August, 2006 … Once the worst road team in the history of MLS, Real Salt Lake steps up on the road when competition is fiercest, winning critical postseason matches in 2009 on the road and performing well away from home in hostile CONCACAF Champions League territory … A recent advent of road success places the squad’s all-time MLS regular season road mark at 19-63-27 (.298; 100 GF / th 182 GA) following the 109 road contest in League play last week at COL … Since Kreis took over, RSL’s MLS road mark is 15-39-22, with the new team mark of five road wins this year exceeding the four achieved in 2010, and more than doubling the two earned in each of the 2007-09 seasons … This year’s 5-8-4 road mark is good for 19 points, matching last year’s team-record total (4-4-7 in 2010) … Starting back on Aug. 13 at Toronto, and factoring in the new Oct. 6 date north of the border, the Claret-and-Cobalt played 9 of its final 13 regular season contests – and 5 of the last 7 – away from the friendly confines of Rio Tinto Stadium … “RSL Nation” was unable to scratch Canada off the list of places its beloved Claret-and-Cobalt have never won (Texas, Canada, Philadelphia, Portland) …

HISTORIC HOME LOSS VS CHICAGO: On September 28 for the first time in its 7-year history, Real Salt Lake lost a home game by a 3+ goal-margin … RSL also saw a 3-goal loss late in its MLS Cup 2009-winning season, dropping an 0-3 decision at Dallas almost two years ago to the day as Saturday’s 1-4 loss in D.C. … RSL went on to win six of its final seven games that year, including the extra time, shootout win over the Galaxy in Seattle to raise the Cup … A list of all the 3-goal losses or 4+ goals allowed games in RSL history below … Jason Kreis (68-47-50): DATE OPP.

Adding insult to injury, the back-to-back hat tricks by DC’s Dwayne DeRosario and Chicago’s Marco Pappa against RSL mark only the second occasion in the 16year history of Major League Soccer – spanning 3,019 games – that a team has given up consecutive 3-goal performances to an opponent (New England, 1998) … The truly bizarre part (thanks to Elias Sports Bureau) is that the “hat trick anomaly” comes on the heels of RSL setting an all-time MLS record of 54 consecutive games without allowing an opposing player to bag even TWO goals in a game … The hat tricks conceded are the fifth and sixth allowed by RSL in its 227-game MLS / CCL history … The 7+ goals allowed in back-to-back games marks only the fifth such occasion in team history, and the first since August 2008 …

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A WEEK MAKES: Real Salt Lake’s 3-1 victory on September 21 at New York allowed RSL to equal its all-time high for wins in a season (15), matching its 2010 total; it also gave RSL a new standard for road wins (5) in a season, surpassing the four away victories claimed in 2010 and 2006 … The three goals in the first 21 minutes marked the fastest start to a 3-0 lead, surpassing the trio of first-half goals scored in 30 minutes on July 23, 2005 (v DAL) and in 41 minutes on March 26, 2011 (v LA) … That night at Red Bull Arena marked the first time EVER that RSL scored three goals in a half on the road … And for 48 minutes against the Red Bulls, prior to the 69’ consolation score by New York’s Joel Lindpere, RSL saw its all-time club goal differential stand at EVEN … An amazing accomplishment, considering the seven-year old club was -39 its first two seasons and -45 prior to the nd Jason Kreis coaching era … Since the 2 Fabian Espindola goal gave RSL a 3-0 first-half lead, Jason Kreis has seen his Claret-and-Cobalt side outscored 2-13, with only a late Alvaro Saborio score at D.C. and Fabian’s first-half header at LA finding the back of the net … In 217 all-time MLS matches, RSL has now scored 277 goals, while allowing 288 …

“BOR-LAVE” PAIRING SUFFER RARE LOSSES:

When 2010 Best XI defenders Nat Borchers and Jamison Olave start together and play 60+ minutes, Real Salt Lake had posted an 8-0-5 mark this season prior to the recent three-game skid, allowing only 6 goals in the prior 13 games … When injury, suspension or red cards limit the duo’s time together and cause one or both to miss action, RSL is only 7-8-1 with 21 goals conceded … In addition to resting on Sept. 24 at DC, Olave – an MLS AllStar this season – has missed one game due to the red card on May 28 in the home loss to Seattle, two road games on turf that followed CONCACAF games 72 hours earlier and five games due to the knee injury suffered in the MLS All-Star Game in late July against Manchester United …

KREIS CONTRACT EXTENDED THRU 2013: On March 24, RSL President Bill Manning and GM Garth Lagerwey announced that the club has extended by two years the contract of current Head Coach Jason Kreis, keeping the youngest MLS Cup-winning manager in League history on the RSL sideline through the completion of the 2013 season … All-time, Kreis now owns a 55-4437 mark in MLS regular-season, playoff and CONCACAF Champions League play … Under Kreis’ leadership, RSL became the first-ever MLS team (and one of just three non-Mexican teams) to win a CONCACAF group, posting a 4-1-1 mark and becoming the first-ever MLS side to advance CCL Final … The former striker’s 2010 side was also the second-highestscoring team in CONCACAF’s group stage, with 17 goals in six games (2.83 goals/game) … MILESTONES ACHIEVED DURING KREIS ERA: During MLS play in 2010, the following numbers established by RSL set or tied new single-season league standards:    

fewest goals allowed (20) overall goal differential (+25) total home points (37) fewest home losses (0) fewest home goals allowed (7)

In addition to those league benchmarks, last year’s edition set franchisehigh records in  wins (15)  goals (45)  scoring output (1.50/game)  points (56)  shutouts (15)  road points (19)  road goal differential (+1)


REAL SALT LAKE v PORTLAND TIMBERS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 BECKERMAN SEES MVP HOPES FADE: RSL Captain Kyle Beckerman – often the hero during the fivemonth absence of playmaker Javier Morales this season – was lost against Los Angeles due to red card suspension th following a momentary loss of control in the 11 minute of the Sept. 28 home loss vs. Chicago … He also missed last Friday’s Rocky Mountain Cup duel at Colorado and the home regular-season finale against Portland on Oct. 22 after the MLS Disciplinary Committee handed him an additional two-game suspension for “endangering the safety of an opponent” … Just after RSL conceded an early Marco Pappa score, Fire DF Daniel Paladini challenged Beckerman from behind, causing the 12-year veteran to lose his head and throw his shoulder/head into Paladini’s jaw … Referee Baldomero Toledo immediately sent Beckerman off, the first red card of Captain KB5’s 121-game RSL career and just the second of his 269-game MLS career with Miami, Colorado and RSL … “It’s not like me,” Beckerman said. “It’s not something I’ve done in the past. It was just something out of nowhere, and I just feel bad and sorry to not only our fans here, but also to the league because I feel that we’re really trying to grow this league, and it’s grown a ton but that type of play has no place here in our games in MLS. I made a mistake and I just split-second made a decision that was really hurtful to the team. And so I’m sorry for that. For most of my career, I’ve been able to not do anything stupid like that,” Beckerman said. “Last night was one of those freak moments that I let get away from me. I’m sorry for that, and embarrassed. I’ll do everything I can to not let it happen again.” The 29-year-old midfielder leads RSL in assists with th nine – good for a 5 -place tie in the League, extending a career high – to go along with five game-winning assists during RSL’s 15-win 2011 season, second only to that other “Becks,” LA Galaxy midfielder, David Beckham … KB5’s career total of 10 game-winning assists leads RSL all-time, three ahead of MF Javier Morales (7) … The RSL Captain has started and played a full 90 minutes in 31 of RSL’s 40 games this year (25 out of 29 MLS games, along with 5 of 6 CCL matches and the Open Cup Quarterfinal at Dallas) … Out of the 40 games in all competitions, Beckerman has sat out only the CCL Final v. Monterrey and 9/21 at New York (suspended for both due to yellow card accumulation), the 2-0 Open Cup home win v. Wilmington Hammerheads and last week at VAN … Prior to last week’s red card and the resultant suspension, national soccer scribes Steve Davis (SI.com), Grant Wahl (SI.com) and now Ridge Mahoney (Soccer America) and Ives Galarcep (FoxSoccer.com) had each mentioned Beckerman as a dark horse candidate in the 2011 MLS MVP race for his tireless efforts to assume RSL’s playmaking mantle in place of the injured Javier Morales …

SEEING RED YET AGAIN: With MF Collen Warner’s first-half ejection October 6 at Vancouver, RSL has now seen 10 players ejected in its last 43 games, dating back to the Javier Morales ejection at Dallas in last year’s playoffs … This after seeing just one red card for the bulk of 2010 (only a bench red to Espindola in a CONCACAF nd match in Panama) … DF Tony Beltran saw red early 2 half in RSL’s first game of the year at Columbus in the Feb. 22 CONCACAF Quarterfinal, and again Sept. 10 in Seattle … In between, DF Nat Borchers has seen 3 red cards, Jamison Olave one and MF Will Johnson one, prior to Kyle Beckerman’s ejection on Sept. 28 and the Collen Warner red … Five of this year’s seven MLS red cards against RSL have come in the first half of games, with Jason Kreis’ 10-man sides posting a 2-2-1 mark in those matches … Following the September 10 ejection of Sounders DF Jhon th Kennedy Hurtado in the 39 minute at Seattle, RSL opponents have now been subject to ejection on 29 occasions, giving the Claret-and-Cobalt a total of 491 minutes with a man-advantage … During those minutes, RSL has now seen a +13 goal difference, thanks to the 4goal outburst on July 23 vs SJ … All-time, RSL now has been victim of 34 red cards, succumbing to a -14 goal difference in a total of 827 minutes playing a man down … Incredibly, SIX of those nine goals came in one game, the 0-6 loss @NY in August th 2006 when DF Jack Stewart was tossed in the 8 minute … RSL has never played with just nine men due to disciplinary issues, and has now scored SEVEN shorthanded goals (Jason Kreis, 7/4/05 v. NY; Chris Klein & Kreis, 9/16/06 v. DAL; a Chris Leitch own-goal on 7/3/09 v. SJ; Nelson Gonzalez late goal on 5/28/11 v SEA; and the Johnson/Sabo goals on July 4) …


REAL SALT LAKE v PORTLAND TIMBERS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 RSL “BRACING” FOR SUCCESS: With FW Fabian Espindola’s two-goal ‘brace’ Sept. 21 at NY, RSL has now seen 11 of its 31 all-time multi-goal performances occur on the road in its 217-game MLS regular-season game, 12game CCL and 12-game Open Cup histories … The multind goal game was Espindola’s 2 across all competitions, tying him with RSL attacking luminaries Jason Kreis (200507) and Yura Movsisyan (2007-09) … Saborio owns 7 multi-goal performances across all competitions, ahead of Jeff Cunningham (5) and Javier Morales’ tie with Robbie Findley with four “braces,” while Espindola, Movsisyan and Kreis each have 2, ahead of Paulo Junior, Will Johnson, Kyle Beckerman, Atiba Harris and Chris Brown who have each also scored 2 or more times in a game … When an RSL player scores 2 or more goals in a game, the team has posted a 22-3-4 all-time mark … Besides the 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul in CCL play and the 4-6 loss at Minnesota in Open Cup action, when was the lone MLS loss? … June 17, 2007, when Chris Brown’s brace @LA was wasted in a 2-3 loss: G Player 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 2

NEW BLOOD JOINING RSL … : At the death of the Sept. 15 MLS roster freeze, RSL GM Garth Lagerwey announced the addition of two players to the team’s roster … Joining RSL on loan from USL PRO Champion Orlando City FC, MF Yordany Alvarez will wear #14 for the Claretand-Cobalt … Now 26 years old and recently named the MVP of the Division 2 USL PRO league, Alvarez is a Cuban-born asylee who defected to the United States during the Olympic qualifying tourney in 2008 … The holding midfielder played at Rio Tinto Stadium in March of 2009 with the Austin Aztex, his side in 2010 as well, prior to the organization’s move to Orlando last winter … Yordany’s performance Sept. 21 at New York was amazing on several fronts, the first player in recent memory to be signed by the Lagerwey / Kreis regime and forced quickly into action … The Cuban Alvarez had 92 touches in his MLS debut, completing 88% of his passes and winning 6 of 9 duels, according to Opta …

Stalwart MF Ned Grabavoy has played 17, 22 and 31, 90 and 90 minutes each of the last five games after missing all of August, while FW Cody Arnoux was one of two RSL players to make his team debut a few weeks ago at home vs. PHI, joining DF Blake Wagner … Arnoux has missed most of 2011 due to his recovery from a serious knee injury suffered last November while with Vancouver, while Wagner signed with RSL on August 15 after DF Chris Wingert – who has started nearly every game since 2008 – broke his wrist that weekend at Toronto … Wingert has been cleared for action, starting and playing 45 minutes in the same Sept. 18 reserve game loss to Kansas City that knocked DF Tony Beltran out for the long haul … Another midseason pickup – FW Chris Agorsor – made his MLS debut last week at Vancouver after breaking his right hand in a reserve game at Houston on August 21 …

DEPTH CONTINUALLY TESTED: The return of talisman MF Javier Morales – the man who has made the RSL attack click since 2008 – could not come at a better time for the Claret-and-Cobalt … This year’s time lost due to injury, suspension or int’l duty: PLAYER

REAL SALT LAKE v PORTLAND TIMBERS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 MAYDAY, MAYDAY: 12-MONTH RUN OF SUCCESS ON MULTIPLE FRONTS: 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 seasonand-a-half … Across MLS reg. season, MLS 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 Real Salt Lake D.C.

GAME 45 9/02/1998 4/30/2011 7/22/2006 9/01/2001

PTS 95 91 91 90

Prior to 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 …

HOW DOES RSL GET BACK IN TO CCL?: RSL probably won’t play another international side – exhibition or otherwise – until the 2012/13 CONCACAF tourney, which it could only qualify for by winning the 2011 MLS Supporters Shield crown or be a MLS Cup 2011 participant … RSL saw its other opportunity fall by the wayside this week after falling out of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup via a quarterfinal defeat at FC Dallas … Had RSL defeated Dallas in last year’s MLS Cup Playoff series, or even had Los Angeles advanced in place of Dallas to MLS Cup – RSL would have qualified for this year’s CONCACAF Champions League due to LA essentially owning “dual” slots (Supp. Shield / Cup participant) and RSL finishing #2 in last year’s overall MLS table …

LATE DRAMA PART OF RSL DNA: MF Will 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): RSL EQUALIZERS AFTER 75’ (18 total) 95+ ................

KHALFAN THE LATEST – & FIRST IN AWHILE: During Real Salt Lake’s early years, it seemed like fans’ hearts were routinely broken by an opposing goal from a player few had ever heard of … Between 2005-07, the club’s turmoil-filled early years, 20 different players scored their first-ever MLS goal against the hapless Claret-and-Cobalt … In the Kreis era, as the team matured, that trend slowed to a trickle – only three players in 2008-09 found the back of the net for the first time vs. RSL … Earlier this year, Seattle’s Lamar Neagle became the first player in two years to bury his first career tally against RSL , with his bending 84’ blast that proved to be the game winner … Two weeks later, Philadelphia midfielder Keon Daniel struck with his initial MLS goal … That feat was repeated Aug. 20 in Houston, as homegrown player Alex Dixon opened his MLS account with a stoppage-time dagger for the Dynamo to send RSL to a crushing defeat … On Oct. 6 at Vancouver, Nizar Khalfan became the latest of the 13 to have scored their lone career MLS goal (as of Oct. 14, 2011, indicated by an *) … The list: DATE 05/28/2005 05/28/2005 06/04/2005 06/22/2005 09/21/2005 10/08/2005 10/12/2005 04/08/2006 05/06/2006 05/27/2006 06/03/2006 07/08/2006 08/19/2006 10/07/2006 10/15/2006 04/21/2007 05/05/2007 07/04/2007 08/18/2007 08/18/2007 04/19/2008 09/06/2008 05/02/2009 05/28/2011 06/11/2011 08/20/2011 10/06/2011

REAL SALT LAKE v PORTLAND TIMBERS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 FORTRESS

STANDING

STRONG

BARELY:

Despite dropping four home games in the last five months, Rio Tinto Stadium and Utah soil remains a “Fortress” for Jason Kreis’ team, as RSL has dropped just 7 of its last 70 home games (44-7-19) across MLS regular season / playoff and CONCACAF / Open Cup play dating back to the start of 2008 … Prior to that, RSL was 15-19-13 on Utah soil in MLS competition, with a -5 goal differential (60 GF / 65 GA) from 2005-07 … nd

The 2010 RSL side was just the 2 MLS team to remain unbeaten at home in an entire season, joining the 2005 SJ Earthquakes (9-0-7) … That feat was equaled by the 2011 LA Galaxy (12-0-5)… From June ’09 to May ‘11, RSL went 21-0-8 at home in regular-season play, the longest such run in League history:

TEAM # START STOP --------------------------------------------------Real Salt Lake 29 06/06/2009 05/28/2011 Columbus Crew 22 06/28/2008 09/26/2009 San Jose 18 09/25/2004 10/08/2005 Three teams tied with 17

With RSL’s 0-3 loss at home Sept. 28 vs Chicago, the team saw its once-impenetrable home breached for the fourth occasion in 2011, including the 1-2 loss on May 28 against Seattle – which snapped its MLS home unbeaten streak at 29 games – and the CCL Final loss on April 27 to Monterrey (MEX) snapped the club’s overall home unbeaten run at 37 games across MLS, CCL and exhibition play … Since June 6, 2009, RSL is 5-1-0 at home in CONCACAF play, 29-3-11 in MLS regular season, 1-0-1 playoffs and 2-0-1 in international exhibitions … The aggregate scoreline in those games?: 98-32 … Form Guide: the 37-4-13 (all competitions) mark from June 6, 2009 – present: (CCL=red; Playoff = blue; friendly = green; Open Cup = underline): 2009: T W T W W W T W T T W W W 2010: T W W W W W W T W T W W W W W W T W W T 2011: W W W W L W T L W T W W T W W L W W W L

RMC TIES: The June 6, 2009 Fox Soccer Channel

telecast went to multiple commercial breaks during Elder Gonzalez’ lengthy “consecration” of the field, much to the disdain of current Rapids’ coach Gary Smith … RSL’s alltime home mark PRIOR to Elder Gonzalez' "consecration" – just 25-21-19 … AFTER Elder Gonzalez' June 6, 2009 prayer at Rio Tinto Stadium – now 37 wins, 4 losses, 13 ties … Real Salt Lake Year-by-Year Home Results (Regular Season) 2005: 5-8-3 (.406) 18 pts. 19 GF / 24 GA (-5 GD) 2006: 6-4-6 (.563) 24 pts. 23 GF / 19 GA (+4 GD) 2007: 4-7-4 (.400) 16 pts. 18 GF / 22 GA (-4 GD) 2008: 8-1-6 (.733) 30 pts. 24 GF / 10 GA (+14 GD) 2009: 9-1-5 (.750) 32 pts. 34 GF / 11 GA (+23 GD) 2010: 11-0-4 (.867) 37 pts. 31 GF / 7 GA (+24 GD) 2011: 10-3-3 (.719) 33 pts. 28 GF / 14 GA (+14 GD) CAREER: 53-24-31 (.634) 177 GF / 107 GA (+70 GD)

BREAKING DOWN THE STREAK: In the two years

without losing a home MLS game between May 16, 2009 (Kansas City) and May 28, 2011 (Seattle), here’s the 29game MLS / Rio Tinto Stadium unbeaten streak for RSL (reg. season only), by the numbers: 17 – RSL shutouts by GK Nick Rimando 16 – number of RSL players to score at home 13 – crowds of 18,000+ or more at Rio Tinto Stadium 12 – opposing players to each score once during streak nd 11 – total 2 half comebacks for RSL to salvage tie/win 9 – goals by FW Robbie Findley, tops among scorers 9 – goals by FW Álvaro Saborío, all coming in 2010 7 – wins at home during the streak following road losses 7 – number of one-goal wins (including five 1-0 wins) 5 – largest margin of victory (see below) 4 – number of 3-0 wins, the most common result 4 – come-from-behind ties 3 – scoreless draws 2 – number of times opponent scored 2 or more goals 2 – Wins against 2010 Supp. Shield winner LA Biggest Win (margin): 7/2/10 v NE – 5-0 Biggest Win (meaning): 10/24/09 v COL – RSL wins 3-0 on final day of season to force postseason tiebreakers and eliminate rd Colorado from playoffs for 3 consecutive season, qualifying for Playoffs and eventually winning MLS Cup and paving way to CCL participation; Biggest Crowd: 3/26/11 v LA – a RioT record of 20,507 saw RSL score twice in first 10 minutes en route to a 3-0 halftime lead and an eventual 4-1 win over David Beckham and the L.A. Galaxy, despite the FIFA date and a Jazz home game; Loudest Crowd: 4/10/10 v SEA – 19,970 were on hand as newcomer Álvaro Saborío headed home a Nelson Gonzalez nd corner kick three minutes into 2 half stoppage time to salvage a 2-2 draw in RSL’s 2010 home opener, a match that included a pre-game banner raising and ring ceremony to commemorate the teams’ MLS Cup 2009 win; Cutting it close: 7/3/09 v SJ – stoppage time OG by Earthquakes’ Chris Leitch gives RSL a 1-1 tie; 4/13/11 v COL – 93’ goal by Fabian Espindola gives RSL 1-0 win Best Comeback: 7/24/09 v DAL – Four second-half goals erase 0-2 halftime deficit; GK Nick Rimando saves Cunningham PK, Kreis ejected; Outscored opponents 59-13, with 16 different scorers: (Findley 9, Saborío 9, Morales 7, Espindola 6, Movsisyan 5, Olave 4, Grabavoy 4, Williams 3, Beckerman 2, Johnson 2, Russell, Campos, Gonzalez, Borchers, Mathis, Paulo Jr.; Own Goals – 2)

HEAD COACH JOHN SPENCER After a standout 18-year professional playing career, Glasgow, Scotland, native John Spencer served as an assistant coach for the Houston Dynamo under head coach Dominic Kinnear for nearly five seasons (2006-2010). He helped lead the Dynamo to back-to-back MLS Cup championships in 2006 and 2007 and four consecutive playoff appearances. From 2006-08, Spencer also coached the Dynamo Reserves, guiding the Dynamo Reserves to the 2008 MLS Reserve Division championship. On Aug. 10, 2010, Spencer was named the first head coach in MLS Timbers history, and on April 14 of this season, Spencer earned his first win as an MLS head coach as the Timbers poured in four goals in a 4-2 win over the Chicago Fire. As a player, Spencer played for such noted English clubs as Chelsea, Everton and Queens Park Rangers, and Scotland’s Glasgow Rangers. In MLS, Spencer starred for the Colorado Rapids from 2001-04, becoming the only player to be the team’s MVP and scoring leader in the same season more than once. Spencer, 40, began his professional playing career in 1987 with Rangers. As a striker, he played for several top-flight clubs over 14 seasons in Scotland and England, most notably amassing 43 goals with English-power Chelsea (1992-96). Spencer joined MLS and the Rapids in 2001 and was considered the team’s undeniable leader due to his skill and work ethic. During his time with Colorado, he played in 88 games and his 37 goals ranks among franchise career leaders. Spencer set the club’s single-season mark for goals (14) and career mark for assists (17), was a two-time MLS Best XI selection (2001, 2003) and was a finalist for the league’s MVP award in 2003. The two-time MLS All-Star (2001, 2003) captained the Rapids to three straight playoff appearances from 2002-04. Spencer etched his name into Rapids history on Aug. 30, 2009, when he was inducted to the Rapids Gallery of Honor. During his playing career, Spencer earned 14 caps with the Scotland National Team from 1994-97. He earned his first cap for Scotland against Russia on November 16, 1994, in Glasgow. His favorite soccer memories include playing for Scotland against England at Wembley Stadium in the 1996 European Championship. He last appeared for Scotland on May 27, 1997, in a friendly against Wales. PERKINS EARNS NEW CAREER RECORD IN SHUTOUTS Timbers goalkeeper Troy Perkins earned a new career high of nine shutouts following a 1-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Oct. 2. With one match remaming, Perkins can still extend the career mark. In 2006, Perkins started all 30 games for D.C. United, earning an overall record of 15-6-9 with eight shutouts. The following season, Perkins matched the mark in 29 matches. GOAL-SCORING DIVERSITY Goals have come from a number of different positions on the field this season for the Timbers. Of the team's 39 goals scored as of Oct. 22, 44 percent (17 goals) have been scored by the forward position. Showcasing the team's depth and attacking skill at all areas, midfielders have accounted for 25 percent (10) of goals, while defenders are almost level with 23 percent (9). Own goals have accounted for 8 percent (3) of the total. FAIR PLAY Timbers defender Futty Danso's six fouls this season ranks as the least by any defender with more than 1,500 minutes played. New York's Tim Ream is second on the list with nine fouls. Danso has committed fouls in just four of his 22 appearances as of Oct. 22.

PORTLAND TIMBERS AT REAL SALT LAKE SATURDAY, OCT. 22, 2011 NEW YORK'S VICTORY THURSDAY ENDS TIMBERS' PLAYOFF HOPES By virtue of the New York Red Bulls' 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Union on Thursday, the Timbers' hopes at a postseason run in their inaugural MLS season came to an end. Even if the Timbers defeat Real Salt Lake tonight, the club's 44 total points isn't enough to overtake New York in the 10th and final playoff spot. TIMBERS DRAW 1-1 WITH D.C. UNITED, PERKINS MAKES SIX SAVES In a high-pressure match with playoff implications, Kenny Cooper scored for the Timbers in the 24th minute, but Dwayne De Rosario equalized for D.C. United in the 73rd minute as Portland and D.C. United played to a 1-1 draw in front of 14,317 rainsoaked fans at RFK Stadium on Oct. 19. Cooper put the Timbers ahead early with a header to the near post off a cross from defender Rodney Wallace. Wallace, making his first start at left back since Aug.17, swung in a left-footed cross from near the top of the box that found Cooper at the top of the six-yard box. Cooper's header, his team-leading eighth goal of the season, beat D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid to the near post. D.C. United, losers of their last four matches entering the game, found the equalizer off the foot of league-leading goal scorer Dwayne De Rosario in the 73rd minute. De Rosario took a ball in the box from Josh Wolff and was able to get enough room around Eric Brunner to beat Timbers goalkeeper Troy Perkins with a hard, left-footed shot to the near post. The goal was De Rosario's league leading 16th of the season, a new career high for the 10-year veteran. Perkins made six saves as D.C. United unleashed 26 shots (eight on goal). Timbers forward Brian Umony struck the crossbar in the 83rd minute, while Eric Brunner came up with a timely open-net stop on De Rosario in second-half stoppage time. Perkins came up with back-to-back saves in the fourth minute of second-half stoppage time. The draw means D.C. United is eliminated from playoff contention, while the Timbers were forced to wait for the result of New York versus Philadelphia on Thursday. SHOOTING FOR THE PLAYOFFS With the season on the line against D.C. United on Wednesday, the two teams combined for 48 shots, including 13 on goal. The Timbers' 22 shots set a new season high and marked the third time the team has registered 20 or more shots this season. D.C. United's 26 shots set a new season high for the team and the mark ranks tied for the third highest among all teams this season. Philadelphia registered 28 shots against New England on Sept. 7 and Houston had 27 shots against New England on April 17. LAST TIME OUT AGAINST REAL SALT LAKE The Timbers defeated Real Salt Lake 1-0 on April 30, extending their season-opening home winning streak to three matches. The shutout was the first recorded by the Timbers and goalkeeper Troy Perkins this season. A 22nd minute volley from Kenny Cooper, his third goal of the season, gave the Timbers enough offense to hang on for the win. Kalif Alhassan recorded his fourth straight assist at home and Jack Jewsbury also earned an assist as the Timbers moved to 3-3-1 on the season. Troy Perkins made three saves to blank the 2009 MLS Cup champions. The win was part of a season-opening five game home-winning streak for the Timbers from April 14-May 21. Timbers rookie Darlington Nagbe earned his first career start in MLS against Real Salt Lake. Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando denied Jack Jewsbury of a goal with a diving save in the 41st minute while Jorge Perlaza saw a glancing header fall just wide of the far post two minutes later. For Real Salt Lake, Alvaro Saborio had a sliding shot miss wide in the 74th minute. A PLACE TO CALL HOME After spending the first three weeks of their inaugural MLS campaign on the road, the final stages of renovation work at JELD-WEN Field were completed in time for the Timbers to debut their impressively refurbished home on a national stage. The Timbers, in front of sold-out crowds of 18,627, scored seven goals on their way to opening up the stadium with a pair of wins over the Chicago Fire and FC Dallas in mid-April. JELD-WEN Field underwent a $40 million renovation that transformed the already iconic downtown Portland venue into one of the most unique and intimate soccer venues in North America. JELD-WEN Field improvements include the addition of an entirely new eastside seating section that will house the new KeyBank Club and premium club seats, the Widmer Brothers Southern Front deck behind the south goal that will provide unique vantage points ideal for casual group seating, a new, state-of-the-art video board that features the

latest in high-definition technology for an enhanced fan experience and a new FieldTurf playing surface well-suited for the variety of sporting and community events that will be featured each year at JELD-WEN Field. Phase I of construction, which included foundation work for the new eastside seats, began in early 2010, while renovation on a larger scale began on Sept. 7, 2010, as demolition commenced following the Division-2 Timbers’ home schedule. JELD-WEN Field, located in the heart of the city, was originally constructed in 1926 and has undergone a number of transformations over the years, none more substantial than the current renovation. The stadium has housed some of the most memorable events in its 85-year life, including presidential visits, an Elvis Presley performance in 1957, Pele’s last official game as a professional and the 2003 Women’s World Cup. It was home to the NASL Timbers from 1975-82 and most recently served as the home grounds for the USL Timbers from 2001-10. IMPROVING ON THE ROAD For the first time this season, the Timbers have earned points in back-to-back road games. Starting with a 1-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Oct. 2, Wednesday's 1-1 draw with D.C. United means the Timbers have taken four points from their last two road matches. Earlier this season, the Timbers earned draws at New England (April 2), Seattle (May 14), San Jose (Aug. 6) and Philadelphia (Sept. 10) and a win over Chicago on July 16, but never in consecutive matches. PUTTING THE TEAM IN A WINNING POSITION The Timbers are 4-1-3 when Kenny Cooper scores this season. Cooper, who has scored in four of the Timbers last six matches, leads the team with eight goals. Cooper gave the Timbers the lead in all three draws (Aug. 6, Sept. 21 and Oct. 19) and was the lone goal-scorer in a season-opening 3-1 loss to Colorado on the road. CLIMBING THE CHARTS The Timbers currently rank tied for fourth on the overall list of wins by an MLS expansion team. Portland's 11 wins sees it placed even with the 2006 Houston Dynamo (11 wins) and one behind the 2009 Seattle Sounders FC (12 wins) on the chart. The 1998 Chicago Fire lead the list with 20 wins, including a 13-3 home record, with the 1998 Miami Fusion (15 wins) ranking second. COOPER HAS POTENTIAL TO REACH MLS MILESTONE BY SEASON'S END The only player to appear in every league match for the Timbers this season, Kenny Cooper is just 30 minutes away from reaching the milestone of 10,000 minutes played in his MLS career. The veteran striker is in his fifth MLS season after returning from 1 1/2 years with German 2.Bundesliga side TSV 1860 Munich. With 90 possible minutes remaining (one games), Cooper is set to surpass the 10,000 minute mark by the end of the season. To date, Cooper has averaged 75.6 minutes per game in 33 matches (28 starts). FIRST ONE'S THE CHARM The Timbers are 11-1-4 when scoring first and 0-13-3 when allowing the first goal of a match. In a 2-1 win over Whitecaps FC on Aug. 20, Portland conceded a goal and won for the first time since recording its first two victories in high-scoring affairs back in April. SCOUTING REAL SALT LAKE Head coach Jason Kreis's side has already clinched a spot to the MLS Cup playoffs, but Real Salt Lake still has its sights on one of the Western Conference's top three seeds, thus bypassing the Wildcard round of the playoffs. A positive result on Saturday, paired with an FC Dallas loss or draw against San Jose would guarantee RSL a spot in the top three. Real Salt Lake is winless in five straight matches after winning five in a row from Aug. 27-Sept. 21. The team will be without the services of veteran midfielder Kyle Beckerman, who is serving an additional two-match suspension for headbutting an opponent and earning a straight red card on Sept. 28 against Chicago. Beckerman served a one-game ban for the red card on Oct. 1 against LA. He served the first game of the additional suspension on Oct. 14.


PORTLAND TIMBERS AT REAL SALT LAKE SATURDAY, OCT. 22, 2011 TIMBERS AWARDED LEED® GREEN BUILDING CERTIFICATION The Portland Timbers announced that JELD-WEN Field has been awarded LEED® Silver Certification established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). LEED is the preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. JELD-WEN Field’s sustainability efforts include a number of initiatives, including the use of energy-efficient lighting and low-flow plumbing fixtures; recycling stations and food-waste composting programs for staff and visitors; subsidized mass transit programs and availability of bicycle racks for fans; and utilizing reusable commodities, using green-certified materials and equipment. TIMBERS' HOME SELLOUT STREAK HITS 17 CONSECUTIVE MATCHES The Timbers saw their 17th consecutive sellout for a league match at JELD-WEN Field on Oct. 14, as Portland lost 2-0 to the Houston Dynamo. The Timbers have sold out each of their league matches at home and have drawn a total of 320,051 fans at JELD-WEN Field this season. Portland plays its final two regular-season matches on the road. MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER AND NBC SPORTS ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP Major League Soccer and the NBC Sports Group announced last week a three-year media rights agreement, which commences at the start of the 2012 MLS season. The partnership calls for 45 MLS games and four U.S. Men’s National Team contests to be televised live across both NBC and NBC Sports Network each season. This marks the first rights deal for the newly-named cable channel that will be re-branded from VERSUS on January 2, 2012. The announcement was made today by MLS Commissioner and Soccer United Marketing CEO Don Garber and Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBC Sports Group. Each season, NBC will broadcast two regular-season MLS games, two playoff games and two appearances by the U.S. Men’s National Team, marking the first time four MLS matches will be broadcast on English-language network television since 2002. The NBC Sports Network will televise 38 regular-season games, three playoff games and two U.S. Men’s National Team matches. All telecasts on NBC and NBC Sports Network will consist of pre-game and post-game coverage. According to the agreement, the NBC Sports Group obtains digital rights across all platforms and devices for the games it televises. MLS ANNOUNCES 2011 MLS CUP PLAYOFF DATES Major League Soccer recently announced the dates for this season’s MLS Cup Playoff matches, culminating in MLS Cup 2011 on Sunday, Nov. 20, at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The road to the league’s 16th championship consists of 13 total games, with a break for FIFA fixture dates (Nov. 11 & 15) between the conference championships and MLS Cup. The broadcast schedule and kickoff times for playoff games will be announced at a later date. Ten teams will qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs upon the conclusion of the regular season on Sunday, Oct. 23. The top three teams in each conference will enter as automatic qualifiers and the next four teams, regardless of conference, will enter the Wild Card Games. The Timbers enter the week in 12th place in the standings, two points behind New York in the 10th and final playoff spot.

EVENLY MATCHED AROUND THE LEAGUE Following Friday's loss to Houston, the Timbers have dropped all six points to just three teams in the league so far this season. Only Sporting Kansas City, defending MLS Cup champions Colorado and Houston have won both games against the Timbers in 2011. Conversely, the Timbers have taken full points from two MLS opponents this season: Chicago and Vancouver. Portland and San Jose shared the points both times this year, with neither claiming a victory. In the remaining game, the Timbers can take all six points from Real Salt Lake with a win on Oct. 22. HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE The Timbers finished with a winning record at home for their inaugural season with a record that stands at 9-5-3. The Timbers become the fifth MLS team to have a winning home record as an expansion team. The Chicago Fire posted the best home record for an expansion club when they went 13-3 in home matches in 1998. DEFENSE SEES IMPROVEMENT AFTER TRADE The statistics indicate that the Timbers' defense has improved since a July 21 trade that brought outside defenders Mike Chabala and Lovel Palmer to the Rose City from the Houston Dynamo. In the 18 games before the fullbacks came to the club, the Timbers allowed 31 goals, an average of 1.72 goals per game, with four clean sheets. Starting with a July 23 loss at Columbus, the Timbers have allowed 16 goals in 15 games, a clip of 1.06 goals per game. The team has also recorded five shutouts in the span. The club has an overall record of 5-5-5 (20 points) since the trade. Prior to the move the team was 6-9-3 (21 points) through three more games played. TIMBERS U-23s SHINE IN COLLEGE RANKS Several of the Timbers U-23 players have started the 2011 NCAA season in impressive fashion. Beaverton, Ore., native Erik Hurtado was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Month for September. As of Oct. 17, Hurtado leads the Broncos (6-5-3 overall, 2-4 WCC) with 14 points (5 goals, 4 assists). Hurtado's five goals lead the WCC. Freshman Nick Palodichuk, from Battle Ground, Wash., ranks second for Duke University with six goals and three assists.

Evans, a sophomore, leads the teams with 10 points (4 goals, 2 assists). At the University of Washington, senior forward Brent Richards leads the team with 20 points (9 goals, 2 assists).
