Telling Stat: Defender Jaziel Orozco started in place of the injured Justen Glad and Erik Holt, making his first career MLS start. Orozco is the youngest player for Real Salt Lake to ever start an MLS match at 17 years and 10 months, only five days younger than the former youngest signing in MLS history Freddy Adu, who made his first start for the Club at 17 years, 10 Months, and five days. Orozco led the team in clearances with four, including one in the final minutes on what could have very well been the game-winner for the Rapids.

What You Missed: Real Salt Lake earned a point on the road in the first leg of the Rocky Mountain Cup with a 1-1 draw against the Colorado Rapids.

Additionally, forward Justin Meram and defender Jaziel Orozco achieved milestones tonight as Meram surpassed 300 career MLS appearances, and Orozco made his first career MLS start.
