COLORADO RAPIDS vs REAL SALT LAKE DICK’S SPORTING GOODS PARK, Commerce City, Colo. 8:30 p.m. MT (ESPN2 / Deportes / TSN2) October 14, 2011 (WEEK 31; MLS Game 289) Yet again, a late-season Rocky Mountain Cup clash will be fraught with playoff implications when the Colorado Rapids play host to Real Salt Lake on Friday evening at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The Rapids are still holding onto a wild card spot, giving their ambitions a big boost and ending a long winless run in a 1-0 win against FC Dallas last time out. Real have already secured a postseason berth, but come into the game on a four-game losing slide after a 3-0 loss at Vancouver last week, now holding third place and an automatic qualifying spot by just five points.

Real have held onto the trophy each of the last three seasons, a pair of goals from Alvaro Saborio in stoppage time sealing a dramatic 2-2 draw in the season finale.  Last-day results sent RSL into the MLS Cup Playoffs ahead of their Rocky Mountain rivals in back-to-back years. Real defeated Colorado 3-0, Oct. 24, 2009 at Rio Tinto Stadium, after a Yura Movsisyan goal in the 90th minute of the season finale at Dick’s Sporting Goods gave RSL a 1-1 draw in 2008. In 2007, a Robbie Findley goal gave RSL a 1-0 win and again ended the Rapids’ playoff hopes, though Real also did not qualify.  Coaches record: Jason Kreis v COL: P12 W5 L2 D5 … Gary Smith vs. RSL: P8 W1 L3 D4 LAST MEETING (MLS) 4/13: RSL 1, COL 0 (Espindola 93+)  Once again, late dramatics settled a Rocky Mountain Cup match. Three minutes into stoppage time, Javier Morales lined up a free kick from 25 yards out. His attempt at goal hit the right post and rebounded to Paulo Junior. He was able only to push it forward, but Espindola swung out his leg to drive the ball into the back of the net for the game winner.  REAL SALT LAKE (4-3-1-2): Nick Rimando - Tony Beltran, Jamison Olave, Nat Borchers, Chris Wingert - Andy Williams, Kyle Beckerman, Ned Grabavoy - Javier Morales - Fabian Espindola, Alvaro Saborio (Paulo Jr. 69).  COLORADO RAPIDS (4-1-3-2): Matt Pickens – Kosuke Kimura, Marvell Wynne, Tyrone Marshall, Drew Moor Jeff Larentowicz - Brian Mullan, Jamie Smith (Andre Akpan 86), Wells Thompson - Omar Cummings (Quincy Amarikwa 63 / Sanna Nyassi 69), Caleb Folan.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


COLORADO RAPIDS The Colorado Rapids put an end to their winless run at five games, defeating FC Dallas 1-0 at Pizza Hut Park on Oct. 1. The Rapids have 45 points from 32 games, sitting in fifth place in the Western Conference. LAST MATCH  The game's lone goal came in the 25th minute. Sanna Nyassi swung in a corner from the right side and Drew Moor rose up to drive a powerful header into the back of the net, his second goal in as many games.  The Rapids finished the game a man down after Miguel Comminges was sent off in the 74th minute following a second bookable offense, but FCD could not capitalize.  Rapids head coach Gary Smith made one change to the team that played to a 1-1 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Brian Mullan came into the side in place of Caleb Folan.  COLORADO RAPIDS (4-4-2): Matt Pickens - Kosuke Kimura, Drew Moor, Marvell Wynne, Miguel Comminges (sent off 74) - Brian Mullan, Pablo Mastroeni, Jeff Larentowicz, Jamie Smith (Tyrone Marshall 77) - Sanna Nyassi (Wells Thompson 81), Omar Cummings (Macoumba Kandji 85). TEAM NEWS  After a split-squad came away from a victory in El Salvador at midweek in the CONCACAF Champions League, the Rapids won for the first time in league play since Aug. 13.  “It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for a week like this. Some big decisions to make, I felt they were the right ones, and I’ve been vindicated in that with the two results that we had,” said Rapids head coach Gary Smith.  Said club captain Pablo Mastroeni: “We’ve been without a [league] win for a while now, and I think finishing off the way we did against San Jose, and not being able to get that second goal, left us a bit empty. The guys going away midweek and really performing in what I think is the most difficult environment that we’ve played in all year, and coming out with that positive energy coming back to the club, it just lifted all of us playing in this game today. It’s a team effort, and we’re going to need everyone.”  The Rapids held on to eighth place overall with the win, still two points ahead of the final wild card spots in the chase for the 10 berths in the MLS Cup Playoffs.  “To beat Dallas means that we go that much closer to them, and hopefully puts a little bit more pressure on them to get some results, so we’re going to try to chase them down,” said Rapids head coach Gary Smith. “(And) a clean sheet, which is nice always to get.”  Center back Drew Moor has scored the last two goals for the Rapids and now has four this season, a career single-season high.  “Scoring early goals always gives you confidence, especially when it’s the first one. I thought we showed great character last week, coming back after going down a goal. This week we showed character the other way, by protecting a lead, which we’ve had trouble doing at times throughout the season,” Moor said. “To score an early goal like that, give yourself some confidence, and to see it all the way though the 95 minutes is a huge win.”  Omar Cummings joined Jamaica for a pair of international friendlies after the win against FC Dallas, as did midfielder Jeff Larentowicz (USA) and goalkeeper Steward Ceus (Haiti), but Sanna Nyassi declined a call from The Gambia for an African Nations Cup qualifier.  "Even if we win, our chances of qualifying are slim," Nyassi said of his team's outlook. "So I thought it was better to stay here and help my team make the playoffs. I think it's better to stay then to go all the way to Africa and return with tired legs. I talked to the federation and they understood everything and said no problem." REAL SALT LAKE Real Salt Lake had their losing skid hit four games, dropping a 3-0 decision to Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Thursday evening at BC Place. RSL is in third place in the Western Conference, with 51 points from 32 matches. LAST MATCH  Whitecaps FC were two goals to the good from penalty kicks on either side of halftime. First, in the 43rd minute, RSL midfielder Collen Warner was adjudged to have used his hand to stop Jay DeMerit's header on the line. Warner was sent off and Camilo stepped up to the spot, sending goalkeeper Nick Rimando the wrong way for the opener.  Then eight minutes into the second half, RSL defender Chris Schuler was ruled to have handled the ball in the box after it ricocheted off a teammate, and Camilo again did the honours to double the Vancouver lead.  The home side capped the victory two minutes from end when Nizar Khalfan left fly from outside the area. Rimando managed to get a hand on the shot, but Khalfan’s strike had too much sting and he could only direct the ball into the corner of his goal.  RSL head coach Jason Kreis made four changes to the team that fell to a 2-1 defeat by the LA Galaxy at The Home Depot Center. Andy Williams and Collen Warner came into the midfield for Yordany Alvarez and Will Johnson, and Paulo Junior and Luis Gil were an all-change strike pair in place of the suspended Fabian Espindola and Alvaro Saborio.

TEAM NEWS  Real Salt Lake have followed a five-game winning streak –the longest in MLS this season – with a four-game losing slide – one short of the season-long and the club’s longest since 2007.  “It’s fair, it is concerning, but we feel we have the leadership in the locker room to overcome that and once we get everybody back and healthy, we feel good about ourselves,” said assistant coach Jeff Cassar.  Cassar was the bench boss for the Vancouver match, with head coach Jason Kreis suffering a bout of food poisoning on gameday and forced to watch the match from the media level.  A victory against Colorado, plus the failure of FC Dallas to win any of their remaining matches, and Real Salt Lake will be guaranteed of a top three spot in the Western Conference and will not have to face a wild card match to open the MLS Cup Playoffs.  “It’s better to lose now than later. The playoffs are coming so we have to improve right now and figure this out as soon as possible so we’re ready for the playoffs,” said Javier Morales. “It’s difficult when you lose and we’ve lost the last three games so it’s hard to get into good form.”  When Collen Warner was sent off vs. Vancouver, it was the fourth red card Real have seen in the last nine games, since Aug. 27.  “We have been a little undisciplined whether it has been on set plays or not focusing on the details and again with the red card, with not defending the set play well, silly foul that leads to the set play,” Cassar said. “What we need is a good week of training to prepare for Colorado.”  Already missing some key performers to international duty and suspension, Real were without two further midfielders for the trip to Vancouver. Yordany Alvarez was not able to enter Canada with visa issues, and Arturo Alvarez was not with the team in order to tend to a death in his family.  “We were a bit thin in the midfield as with Alvarez’s grandmother passing away, so we didn’t have as many options as we wanted to, especially down a goal,” said Cassar.  Chris Agorsor made his MLS debut, coming on for the final 11 minutes. Cody Arnoux made his second league appearance, his first since Sept. 3, coming on at halftime.  Real will have Jean Alexandre (Haiti), Alvaro Saborio (Costa Rica), Nick Rimando and Kyle Beckerman (both USA) all back from international duty – though Beckerman is suspended for the final two league games.  There could be a blow from international matches, however: Will Johnson was forced off early in Canada’s win against St. Lucia and excused from the national team before the match vs. Puerto Rico; he is listed as out in the club’s injury report for the Colorado game.

COLORADO RAPIDS GAME NOTES—October 14, 2011 MLS Regular Season Date: Friday, Oct. 14, 2011, 8:30 pm MT Location: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park Television: ESPN2 / ESPN Deportes Colorado Rapids Media Contacts: David Lindholm m - 720.320.9302 e - dlindholm@dsgpark.com Rachel Sweeney o - 303.727.3508 e - rsweeney@dsgpark.com

COLORADO RAPIDS vs. REAL SALT LAKE The Colorado Rapids are 8-7-6 all-time against Real Salt Lake, and 5-2 -3 when playing in Colorado. This is the second matchup of the season between the Rapids and RSL. On April 13, the Rapids fell 1-0 at Rio Tinto Stadium on a stoppage time goal by Fabian Espindola. Last minute deciders have become the norm for these matchups, as five of the last six games between the rivals have been affected by goals in the 85th minute or later. Playoff Clinching Scenario The Rapids have just two games remaining in the regular season and currently sit in fifth place in Western Conference. They have the opportunity to clinch a playoff spot on Friday night, but would need help from a few other teams in order to do so. In addition to a Rapids win against Real Salt Lake, Colorado will clinch a playoff berth if one of the following scenarios occur:

However, by picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in the match, Moor received a mandatory one match suspension and had to miss the Sept. 9 game at the LA Galaxy. Moor’s streak began on August 6, 2009 and consisted of 6,210 consecutive minutes of MLS regular-season action.

Conor Casey continues to recover from his season-ending injury, a ruptured left achilles tendon, suffered on July 16 at Seattle Sounders.

Mastroeni played his 300th career match and his 200th Rapids game on June 18 against LA —only seven other players have played 300 MLS matches and at least 200 with one team.

Season Streaks The Rapids set a team record going unbeaten in nine games (2-0-7) from April 30 to June 11. The LA Galaxy snapped the streak with a 3-1 victory at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on June 18. Previously, the longest unbeaten streak was eight matches from April 25 to June 24, 2009. The Rapids tied six consecutive matches from May 7 to June 4, which is the longest streak in a single MLS season and matched the all-time MLS record (San Jose recorded six ties over the conclusion of the 2004 season and the start of 2005). Lineup Changes Twenty-two different players have started at least one match; Only three players have appeared in all 30 matches (Larentowicz, Pickens, and Kimura). All three have started every match, and only Pickens has played the full 90 minutes in every match (Kimura has been subbed out twice this season and Larentowicz once).

Shutouts Goalkeeper Matt Pickens has recorded 21 career shutouts for the Rapids (most recently the 1-0 victory over FC Dallas on October 1), and is currently in second place for Colorado’s all-time shutouts record. He needs four more to catch the leader, Joe Cannon, who earned 25 shutouts for the Rapids from 2003 to 2006.

MLS REGULAR SEASON GAME #33 – 2011 RSL GAME #41

Real Salt Lake

(15-11-6, 51 pts, 3rd in West)

Colorado Rapids

@

(11-9-12, 45 pts, 5th in West) Friday, October 14, 2011 – Dick’s Sporting Goods Park – Commerce City, Colo. – 8:30 p.m. MT TV: RADIO:

ESPN2 w/ Adrian Healey & John Harkes ESPN700 Sports Radio w/ Spencer Warne America First Credit Union Pre-Game Show @ 7:30 p.m. w/ Spencer Checketts & Trey Fitz-Gerald Juan 106.1 FM / ESPN-Deportes 1600 AM w/ Nelson Moran & Fernando Hortal

PROBABLE STARTERS 10/14 @ COLORADO RSL (4-4-2 diamond, R  L): GK: Rimando DF: Russell, Olave, Borchers, Wingert MF: Y. Alvarez; Williams, A. Alvarez; Morales; FW: Espíndola, Saborío

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CUP EDITION #7: RSL heads east to Colorado to resume the most intense rivalry in Major League Soccer – the Rocky Mountain Cup – which reaches new heights this season, the trophy contested by the two most recent MLS Cup Champions … RSL has required late heroics to salvage points in both meetings with Colorado last year, as DF Nat Borchers’ stoppage-time header gave a largely reserve RSL side the 1-1 draw at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sept. … A month later, it was TWO goals in stoppage time by FW Alvaro Saborio to draw 2-2 and retain the Cup for RSL, which had knocked the Rapids out of the playoffs in 2007, 2008 and 2009 … Earlier this season, it was a controversial stoppage-time goal by FW Fabian Espindola in the 93+’ that gave RSL a 1-0 home win and moved the team to 4-0-0 on the MLS season, just prior to late April CONCACAF Champions League final series with Monterrey … Friday’s match at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park kicks off at 8:30 p.m. MT, with the match televised live nationwide via ESPN2 … Fans can also follow over the air on RSL’s official radio partners, ESPN 700 Sports and ESPN Deportes 1600 AM / Juan 106.1 FM … With a win, draw or even a one-goal loss Friday night in Commerce City, RSL would retain the Cup for the fifth consecutive season …

RSL INJURY REPORT (as of 10/11/11) OUT: DF Tony Beltran (L adductor strain), MF Nelson González (R foot fracture) DOUBTFUL: MF Will Johnson (R ankle sprain) QUESTIONABLE: FW Chris Agorsor (L hamstring strain) PROBABLE: DF Robbie Russell (R hamstring strain)

ALL-TIME ROCKY MOUNTAIN CUP HISTORY: Real Salt Lake may trail the overall series 7-8-6, but it’s the Utahans that have controlled the rivalry as of late, posting a 5-2-4 record across the last 11 meetings dating back to the middle of the 2007 campaign – not coincidentally after trading for MF Kyle Beckerman and DF Chris Wingert from its rivals … That marked the first season RSL claimed the Rocky Mountain Cup trophy for its supporters following a 7-4 win in points, and the Utah side has managed to retain possession of the Cup after series splits in each of the last three regular seasons … Real Salt Lake is 2-5-3 on the road all-time against the Rapids, which includes a mark of 1-2-3 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park … The rivals have met on the final day of the season each year from 2007-10, with massive postseason implications every time … Back in 2007, a late goal by FW Robbie Findley gave RSL a 1-0 win for its first-ever piece of hardware, while simultaneously knocking Colorado from playoff contention … In 2008, RSL drew 1-1 at DSG Park with a late Yura Movsisyan rebound to go through to the postseason and leave the Rapids at home … In 2009, RSL dominated the Rapids 3-0 in Utah on the final weekend to pave its path to an eventual MLS Cup victory … Last year, both teams were already advanced into the Playoffs, but seeding was on the line, as the draw – combined with LA’s win 24 hours later – eliminated RSL from the Supporters Shield …


REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2011 HOLDING ON IN WESTERN RACE: Due to capturing

ROAD WARRIORS CONTINUE TO STUMBLE: The

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 51 points through 32 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 … Totals after 30 games in the Kreis era:

loss at Vancouver last Thursday was RSL’s third consecutive road loss after the team’s three-game road win streak from Aug. 27-Sept. 21, matching the franchise high set back in August, 2006 …

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 …

WHITECAPS REWIND – RSL FALLS 0-3: Real Salt Lake was missing several key pieces – Captain Kyle Beckerman (USMNT), FW Alvaro Saborio (Costa Rica), MF Will Johnson (Canada), FW Fabian Espindola (yellow card accumulation), MF Yordany Alvarez (visa issues), MF Arturo Alvarez (death in family), FW Jean Alexandre (Haiti) and DF Tony Beltran (adductor strain) – when it departed last week for the makeup game at Vancouver during a FIFA weekend, but the return of MF Javier Morales gave hope to a team playing its 6th game in 19 days … Late in the first half, MF Collen Warner was adjudged by referee Chris Penso to have intentionally handled a ball in the box – replays showed the prone Warner blocking the shot with his left shoulder – and receiving a red card, RSL’s fourth ejection in the last nine games and the fifth first-half red of the year for Jason Kreis’ team, which had suffered ZERO red cards during the 2010 regular season … Camilo buried the first of his two PK attempts on the evening – DF Chris Schuler was whistled by the linesman for a double-deflection handball at the top of the box in the 59th minute – as 10-man RSL eventually fell 0-3 for its fourth consecutive loss …

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 19-63-26 (.296; 100 GF / 182 GA) following the 108th road contest in League play last week at VAN … Since Kreis took over, RSL’s MLS road mark is 15-39-21, 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 … 16 games down (5-8-3, 18 pts), one to go in 2011 … Starting back on Aug. 13 at Toronto, and factoring in the new Oct. 6 date north of the border, the Claret-and-Cobalt play 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) …

UNFAMILIAR RUN OF FORM FOR KREIS, RSL: With Thursday’s loss at BC Place, 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 …


REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2011 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 … 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 (68-47-49): DATE OPP.

BACK-TO-BACK DEFENSIVE DEBACLES: The Fire / D.C. debacles also mark the first time RSL has ever dropped back-to-back games by 3+ goals, and only the fifth time in team history that 7+ goals have been allowed in 180 minutes … The list: DATE 07/09/2005 07/16/2005 08/10/2005 08/13/2005 08/19/2006 08/26/2006 08/16/2008 08/23/2008 09/24/2011 09/28/2011

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 Jason Kreis coaching era … Since the 2nd 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 216 all-time MLS matches, RSL has now scored 277 goals, while allowing 288 …

HOLLYWOOD HIGHS AND LOWS: The “RSL Nation” collective had its sights set on Oct. 1 at Los Angeles for much of the season, anticipating a Supporters’ Shield matchup as well as the potential return of 2010 Team MVP and 2010 MLS Best XI playmaker Javier Morales … While the August swoon – losses in 4 of 5 games – and the back-to-back losses @ DC and v CHI erased the luster of the marquee matchup at LA, Morales was able to make his first start since the horrific ankle injury back on May 7 vs Chivas … The start was precipitated somewhat by the Oct. 6 game being played on turf, with Jason Kreis seeking extended minutes for Javier’s comeback and the opportunity to develop and dictate the rhythm of a game … Morales started and went 80 minutes last Saturday, exceeding the anticipated action by about 20 minutes … While not yet reaching his all-star form, Morales did look sharp in just his second appearance following the 5-month layoff, garnering an assist of his 45’ corner kick to the head of FW Fabian Espindola and receiving a yellow card from Referee Kevin Stott as well … The lead was the first a road opponent had enjoyed at LA this season, but RSL conceded a pair of rather fluky goals in the 2nd half to drop the game … In the 59th minute, GK Nick Rimando and DF Jamison Olave each seemed to await action from the other on a Chad Barrett breakaway, while the 72nd minute saw a Todd Dunivant ball glance of not one but two RSL defenders for the team’s first own goal in more than three years …


REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2011 ESPINDOLA MOVES INTO NEW TERRITORY:

RIMANDO SHELL-SHOCKED LAST 3 GAMES:

RSL’s “other” FW, Fabian Espindola headed home a Javier Morales corner kick in the 45th minute at LA on October 1 for his 10th 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 …

RSL GK Nick Rimando and his normally stellar defense own a league-high 13 clean sheets in 32 MLS games during the 2011 campaign, but the 11 goals allowed in the last three games represent 55% of the total allowed during the entire 2010 season and nearly 45% of the total allowed this year prior to the last 360 minutes …

Espindola’s goal last week was the 26th of his five-year RSL career, spanning 93 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

GP

GOALS 25 10 21 10 27 12 27 12 31 16

Unfortunately, Espindola received cautions in each of RSL’s last two games, v. CHI and @ LA, bringing him to five on the season and rendering him ineligible for Thursday’s match at Vancouver … The colorful Argentine will be back for Friday’s Rocky Mountain Cup …

SABORIO SPECIAL FOR RSL STRIKE FORCE: RSL’s predatory striker Álvaro Saborío also returns to the side after missing last week’s 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 10th goal of the year on Sept. 24 at DC, coming off the bench to score his fourth goal in his last six MLS games – and his 10th 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) … The early 2nd-half game-winner on Sept. 10 at Seattle was the 9th GWG for Saborio in his now 48 MLS games over the last two seasons – placing him in a 1st place tie with Robbie Findley’s 9 game-winners in 96 career MLS games – while the pinpoint header at NY was the 21st 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 11-13-13 mark when he plays and does not score, as well as RSL’s 7-3-4 record when Sabo is unavailable …

The last shutout – back on Sept. 17 v KC – was Rimando’s 12th of the season (Reynish, 4/9 @NE) and the 50th of his 141-game RSL career, as well as the 86th of his 286 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 105 clean sheets in 384 games (19 add’l shutouts in 101 more games) … Each of the ‘keepers has a pair of MLS Cup rings …

DEFENSE THE BACKBONE OF RSL SUCCESS: RSL’s once-vaunted rearguard has now conceded 35 goals through 32 games, including the allowance of one goal or fewer in 20 of 32 MLS contests … The team boasted a league-low 0.82 GAA prior to the last four 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 32 games are five victories by a 1-0 count, emphasizing the critical nature of the team’s commitment to defense … With 2 games 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) …

“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 …


REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2011 KREIS CONTRACT EXTENDED THRU 2013: On

THREE-GAME WEEKS PILE UP: In the Jason Kreis

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) …

era, RSL has played 3 games in a week a total of 18 times (in all competitions), registering a 25-21-17 record … As indicated in RED below, RSL is 4-7-6 when opening a 3-game week at home, and a pair of roadies follow … RSL faced that scenario last week, and again this week … The list:

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)

REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 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 following a momentary loss of control in the 11th minute of the Sept. 28 home loss vs. Chicago … He will also miss 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 nine – good for a 5th-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 last week at Vancouver, RSL has now seen 10 players ejected in its last 42 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 match in Panama) … DF Tony Beltran saw red early 2nd 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 last week’s 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 Kennedy Hurtado in the 39th 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 2006 when DF Jack Stewart was tossed in the 8th 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) …

“YOUNG-UN” GIL STEPPING UP AS WELL: When RSL acquired 16-year old MF Luis Gil in Feb. 2010, few would have imagined 18 months later that the Garden Grove, Calif., native would have played in 19 consecutive games – a streak snapped last weekend at LA – starting 13 out of 17, replacing the void left by Javier Morales at attacking mid for nearly a dozen critical games in August / September … Gil has two goals in more than 1000 minutes of play, with the budding 17-year-old playmaker scoring 8/6 v NY (3-0 W) and 8/20 @ HOU (2-3 L) …

LINEUP SHUFFLE STOPPED IN TORONTO … : For the first – and only – time in more than a year, Real Salt Lake Head Coach Jason Kreis rolled out the same starting XI on Aug. 13 at Toronto as he had the previous week – in the team’s 30th 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 58 MLS, CCL and Open Cup games …


REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2011 RSL “BRACING” FOR SUCCESS: With FW Fabian

NEW BLOOD JOINING RSL … : At the death of the

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 216-game MLS regular-season game, 12game CCL and 12-game Open Cup histories … The multigoal game was Espindola’s 2nd across all competitions, tying him with RSL attacking luminaries Jason Kreis (200507) and Yura Movsisyan (2007-09) …

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 …

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

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 …

… WHILE OLD BLOOD RETURNS TO HEALTH: 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:

REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 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.

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 May 7 marked the 16th 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+ ................

DIXON 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 … Dixon is now one of the 12 to have scored their lone career MLS goal (as of Sept. 28, 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

REAL SALT LAKE @ COLORADO RAPIDS – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 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 … The 2010 RSL side was just the 2nd MLS team to remain unbeaten at home in an entire season, joining the 2005 SJ Earthquakes (9-0-7) … 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 11 – total 2nd 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)
