RSL, back home

Can you believe Real Salt Lake hasn’t played a home game since it beat Liga MX team León on Aug. 4? Or that the team hasn’t played an MLS league game since July 15? After Sunday’s league road game against LA Galaxy, and Wednesday’s U.S. Open Cup semifinal in Houston, RSL returns to America First Field, 9265 S. State St., Sandy, to host the Houston Dynamo. The match starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at RSL.com.
