RSL breaks record for goals conceded in a half after 5-0 first 45

Going down 5-0 sealed RSL’s place in the MLS record books.

Real Salt Lake has not been playing particularly well against FC Dallas tonight, and for their troubles, they were given exclusive reign over a very exciting statistic.

They’ve now conceded the most goals in a half in a regular season game.

Funny story, though. If we’re talking all-time — including MLS Cup playoffs — then RSL only just equalized a record held by the then-Dallas Burn side, FC Dallas. That was certainly unexpected.

Real Salt Lake is two goals away from beating an MLS record for most goals conceded by a team, which is quite the exciting prospect, too.

And if RSL can manage to score one more — the score’s 5-2 right now — they’ll tie an all-time record for goals in a given match.

Anyway, back to the match. RSL has just 20 minutes to score four goals and tie this one up. We’ll see how it goes.
