First off, I'd like to give a big congratulations to Real Salt Lake, who are advancing to the Final of the CONCACAF Champions League.
This is a huge accomplishment, as they are the first MLS team to go to the Final since the LA Galaxy in 2000.
They advanced to the Final after defeating Saprissa on a 3-2 aggregate. Last night they had to go down to Saprissa (located in San Jose, Costa Rica), and defend a 2-0 lead.
Saprissa's Estadio Ricardo Saprissa Aymá is a tough place to play in the least.
After Saprissa's first goal, the fans were shaking the stadium, and everything in it. If you were watching the TV broadcast on Fox Soccer Channel, you know what I mean.
Salt Lake lost 2-1 last night, but the 2-0 win they had at Rio Tinto Stadium would see them through.
Central SC Cobras FC will open their season of friendlies on Friday, May 6th at 7:00 PM against the Charlotte Lady Eagles.
Adult tickets are only $5 and kid's tickets are $2, so make sure to head out to that match in a couple of weeks.
