Fans tuning in early and seeing the lineup for Real Salt Lake likely ran the gamut of reactions; some will have uttered some gratuitous swear words, others serious concern, while a few may have actually looked forward to seeing so many young players finally earning minutes. What may have been a surprise is that RSL’s defensive line held for 28 minutes before Seattle Sounders finally broke the deadlock. The home side would eventually go on to win, but many fans will likely breathe a sigh of relief that the damage wasn’t much worse.
