REAL SALT LAKE FALLS 0-1 TO HOUSTON
DYNAMO IN MLS RESERVE LEAGUE PLAY

Early Goal by
Mike Chabala Lifts Dynamo Reserve to Second Win in 2011, RSL Reserves to Second
Straight Defeat

 

SANDY,
Utah (Saturday, May 14, 2011)
– The MLS Reserve League sides for
Real Salt Lake and the Houston Dynamo met for a late evening kickoff at Rio
Tinto Stadium that saw the Dynamo emerge victorious 1-0 courtesy of an early
goal by defender Mike Chabala. Houston forward Jason Garey garnered the
game-winning assist on the 14th minute play after passing to
Chabala, who chipped RSL goalkeeper Kyle Reynish from the edge of the penalty
arc for what turned out to be the game’s lone tally. Dynamo goalkeeper Tyler
Deric tallied a shutout on the evening thanks to his five-save effort.

With
the result, Houston notched its second win in Reserve League play in three
contests, while Real Salt Lake’s second straight defeat brought its record to
1-3-0. Both squads will face off against FC Dallas for their next match in
Reserve League action, with RSL playing the “Hoops” next Sunday, May 22, at
Pizza Hut Park (following first-team match), while the Dynamo will host the
intra-Texas affair against Dallas on Sunday, May 29 (10:00 a.m. CT).

Salt Lake Reserves Notes

  • Midfielder
    Nelson González will be ineligible for Real Salt Lake’s next Reserve
    League contest after picking up a red card late in Saturday night’s contest.
  • Midfielder
    Luis Gil and forward Donny Toia saw their last action with Real
    Salt Lake before they embark on a training camp with the U.S. Under-20 Men’s
    National Team
    in Vichy, France, from May 15-20. The pair of
    youngsters will travel overseas tomorrow for the six-day stay that will include
    friendlies against their French counterparts on Tuesday and Thursday. Following
    that trip, Toia will return to the Claret-and-Cobalt, while Gil will remain in
    Europe, trekking down to Portugal to join the U.S. Under-18 Men’s National
    Team
    for the Lisbon International Tournament from May 25-28.

    Salt Lake called up four members of its RSL-Arizona Academy squad for tonight’s
    Reserve League fixture – Julio Alcaron, David Flores, Maikon Orellana and
    Ricardo Velazco

    midfielder and forward, respectively, while Velazco replaced Orellana up top in
