Real Salt Lake took a major step toward a potential first-round series upset on Saturday, scoring a 1-0 victory in the opening leg of its series vs. defending MLS Cup champions Columbus Crew.

Robbie Findley tapped home a Yura Movsisyan pass in the 88th minute to send RSL into Thursday night's Game Two in Columbus up a goal.

The Crew played without reigning MLS MVP Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who was left on the bench in favor of Emilio Renteria and Steven Lenhart in a decision best described as questionable.

In case you missed it, here is Findley's game-winning goal:

What did you think of RSL's victory? See Real Salt Lake pulling off the series upset, or do you see Columbus pulling away in game two? Still stunned that Schelotto didn't play?
