Believe it or not, RSL (6-1-6) has a more difficult road ahead of itself, even in the wake of its first loss of 2014. On Sunday, RSL boarded a plane not back to Salt Lake International Airport, but toward the Buckeye State.

The choice was to give center back Chris Schuler the day off as the two top teams in Major League Soccer faced off on the turf inside CenturyLink Field on Saturday. With three important matches in seven days before the official FIFA World Cup break, Cassar decided that with Schuler’s history of foot — and recently knee — issues, the turf could do more harm than good. “It’s an extremely tough decision,” Cassar said. “I don...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Throughout its first 12 matches of 2014, Real Salt Lake had its share of fluid play and fortune. That was the sentiment entering perhaps the most-compelling match to date of the still-young 2014 campaign. There would indeed come a time when the fluidity and fortune ran bone dry. It did on a splendid, sun-filled Saturday afternoon in downtown Seattle. Unfamiliar to a loss in nearly six months, RSL became reacquainted with that feeling against its rival Seattle So...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
