Real Salt Lake hits the road to face New England Revolution

SALT LAKE CITY — After an eventful home opener and an impressive win over the Seattle Sounders, Real Salt Lake (RSL) is set to hit the road to face the New England Revolution for their first Eastern Conference matchup of the season.

Despite a severe-weather-delay, which postponed the game for several hours, RSL defended their home turf with an impressive 1-0 victory over Western Conference foe Seattle this past weekend.

Following an abbreviated halftime after returning to the pitch, RSL striker Bobby Wood buried a rebound just outside the six-yard-box to put RSL up and the Sounders would never find an answer.

“It feels crazy, you know, I couldn’t be happier about it and I am glad that I contributed to the first three points of the season,” Wood said in the postgame press conference.

RSL will now travel to face New England who is also 1-0-1 and sits in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

Former New England Revolution midfielder and Braintree, MA native Scott Caldwell will face his former team for the first time as a member of RSL.

“I’m still obviously a Revolution fan from when I was a kid, ya know, and I always want the best for the club and the team, and who knows what the future holds, but for now my main focus is helping Real Salt Lake,” Caldwell said.

Saturday’s match is set for a 5:30 p.m. MT kickoff. It will be locally broadcast on KMYU and available to stream via the KSL TV & KSL Sports apps. Fans can also follow via ESPN700 AM radio.
