Real Salt Lake Adds Monarchs Trio on Short-Term Contracts

Real Salt Lake has signed three Real Monarchs players to short-term agreements ahead of the match against LAFC.  DF Andrew Brody, FW Kyle Coffee and DF Noah Powder.

Moving to right back prior to the 2018 season, Brody is a mainstay on the Monarchs backline where he’s played in 41 matches. This season, he has started and played in 12 matches for the Monarchs while providing two assists. In total, Brody is the all-time leader in appearances for Real Monarchs SLC with 88 games played since signing for the club prior to the 2016 season.

Coffee has scored one goal in six total appearances for the Monarchs during his rookie season, making one start.  The Syracuse, Utah, native played four seasons at the University of Washington before returning to his home state to play with the Monarchs.  Coffee played his club soccer for La Roca FC and featured for Syracuse High School where he became the first-ever division one college player in his school’s history.

Powder arrived at the Monarchs from the 2018 Western Conference leaders Orange County SC where he helped in not only scoring a few goals but was an important piece as a left back in securing the highest goal differential in the West.  Among his accolades in the USL, Powder brings with him international experience having played for the Trinidad and Tobago U-17s and U-20s making a total of 13 appearances and notching four goals between the two. In 2019, Powder has registered 10 starts and 11 eleven appearances for the Monarchs, scoring his first goal for the club last weekend in a 5-3 win over Rio Grande Valley FC.
