Real Salt Lake eliminate Seattle Sounders in shocking upset

    Real Salt Lake made history on Tuesday night after eliminating clear favorites Seattle Sounders to advance to the Western Conference semifinals. After 120 minutes of play, the underdogs defeated the Sounders on the sixth round of penalties. 

    RSL goalkeeper David Ochoa became the instant hero, stopping Kelyn Rowe’s penalty to earn the advantage and ultimately end the Sounders’ playoff streak. 

    After the stunning save by Ochoa, Justen Glad then stepped up to score the sixth penalty for Real Salt Lake and secure the shocking victory.

    For the first time in team history, the Seattle Sounders have failed to reach the Conference semifinals after qualifying for 12 consecutive years.

    Prior to Tuesday night’s upset, the Sounders had also won 15 straight home playoff games, the longest post-season winning streak in Major League Soccer history.
