Real Salt Lake proud of MLS postseason despite losing Western Conference final

    Real Salt Lake’s 2021 season came to an end on Saturday after losing 2-0 to the Portland Timbers in the Western Conference final at Providence Park.

    The Utah-based side enjoyed their Cinderella moment after becoming the unlikely stars of this year’s MLS playoffs. Real Salt Lake qualified to the playoffs after narrowly edging out the LA Galaxy with 49 regular-season points.

    Fans expected the underdogs to crumble under the pressure of the Seattle Sounders before achieving one of the biggest upsets this season. RSL eliminated the Washington-based giants on penalties before going on to outscore Sporting Kansas City to reach the Western Conference final.

    But the magic soon ran out as Portland’s Felipe Mora and Santiago Moreno led the Timbers to victory, ending RSL’s spectacular postseason run.

    Despite the abrupt ending, interim head coach Pablo Mastroeni admitted he couldn’t be more proud.
