RSL “Game Note” of the Match: More Than Just a Home Streak for
RSL …

In
Major League Soccer’s 16-year history, there have been 25 double-digit unbeaten
regular-season streaks for its teams … Real Salt Lake’s historic 2010 season
saw the squad amass runs of both 10 and 14 games
, with the mid-April win
vs. Colorado extending the latter streak to 18 games without a loss, one of the
top three streaks in MLS history, just two games shy of setting a new League
standard …

A
year ago, FC Dallas matched the Columbus Crew’s 19-game run
by not losing for 4 ½ months, then
saw it crash to a halt by dropping an 0-2 decision at Rio Tinto Stadium …
Dallas had the last laugh, however, ousting RSL in the teams’ first-round MLS
Cup Playoff matchup with a 3-2 aggregate win in October … The list:
