For a younger team that was supposed to be in rebuilding mode in 2013, Real Salt Lake has all the makings of league champions as they enter the second half of the season.
RSL extended their unbeaten streak to eight matches on Saturday night with a 3-0 win over former Western Conference leaders FC Dallas. Their first victory in the state of Texas maintained their top spot in the Supporters Shield race and earned them SBI Team of the Week honors for Week 20.
Despite missing four starters to Gold Cup duty and an injury to backup goalkeeper Josh Saunders, the visitors held off the FC Dallas attack and notched three goals in an impressive all-around performance.
RSL beat out Portland, Houston, Vancouver and New York for this week’s honors.
