For the fourth year in a row, United failed to get points playing at Real Salt Lake's home stadium. The team scored first, but then conceded a goal minutes later. The final tally came just ten minutes from the final whistle, as Javier Morales put Salt Lake up for good.
The good for United?
- Luciano Emilio found the back of the net for the third game in row.
- Rookie Chris Pontius got his first career assist.
- Fred got his first start of the year and played nearly 70 minutes.
- Santino Quaranta made his first appearance of 2009.
- Andrew Jacobson held his own in his first career MLS start.
The team will load up tomorrow morning at 7:45 a.m. to head to the airport. It has just four days to prepare for Friday night's game against its bitter rival - the New England Revolution. The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes. Get yourself out to RFK Stadium.
