Real Salt Lake 4:1 Columbus Crew

In the CONCACAF Champions League Quarterfinal 2nd Leg and it could have been worse. Will Johnson with a bomb in the first half that clangs upright, a second half corner headed off the crossbar and several wonderful saves by Ray Burse, it could have easily been 7 or more.

Rio Tinto was rocking even in below freezing weather and RSL looked good, real good. I was very impressed by everyone, particularly Saborio and Morales. Man, they look like they could be this years Casey/Cummings pair and it is just pre-season. Andy Williams' free kick for the fourth goal--just so sweet!

RSL will face the winner of Olimpia (PAN) and Saprissa (CRA) in the semi-finals. If RSL can keep it even on the away leg, Rio Tinto should help them get through to the finals, where they will face Mexican competition in Cruz Azul (who also advanced last night), Monterrey or Toluca.
