Tomorrow night Real Salt Lake (RSL) will be taking on BYU men’s soccer team in an exhibition match.
The Deseret Morning News had the following quote:
“It’s a privilege for our guys to be able to play against some of Utah’s best competition,” said BYU head coach Chris Watkins. “This is also a great opportunity for fans to see the two best teams in the state compete against each other.”
The game is at 7 p.m. and will be at BYU’s South Stadium.
I think this will be an interesting matchup, because BYU could just beat Real Salt Lake. Would that make them the best soccer team in Utah? Probably not definitively, but it sure says something about the progress of BYU’s mens soccer team. They’ve come along way that they are now able to play with MLS clubs. Although, I must admit that RLS is the bottom dweller of the MLS league. They’re right there next to soccer power house Toronto.
Does anyone think it’s possible that BYU could improve enough to join MLS? I don’t know if that is legally or politically possible, but everyone has to look at admiration with what BYU has done with its mens soccer team. They’ve definitely taken things to a whole other level.
