Quakes v Real Salt Lake

The Quakes hosted another midweek match, this time against Real Salt Lake, but the effort was all for naught thanks to a 4-3 loss.  Chofis was clearly the player of the match thanks to his hat trick.  His goal in the 26th minute gave the Quakes the lead but the visitors evened the score thanks to a Rubio Rubin tally before the end of the first half.

The second half had the match with both teams exchanging the lead with Salt Lake adding with a goal from Alfred Rusnak in the 49th minute. Another Chofis strike one minute later and the third to complete his trick fifteen minutes after gave the Quakes a 3-2 lead.  The possible three point win and one point draw were blown thanks to goals from Justin Meram (71st minute) Rubin Rubio (81st minute) and giving Salt Lake the win.
