Chivas USA Coach Robin Fraser said he used the recent three-week break in the Major Soccer League schedule to "focus on the minor details that we need to improve on. " Apparently scoring goals wasn't among them. Either that or Fraser's lessons didn't take because Chivas proved just as punchless Saturday as it did before the break, losing, 3-0, to Real Salt Lake before an announced crowd of 13,816 at the Home Depot Center. How bad was it? Real Salt Lake 'keeper Nick Rimando had to make just three saves — and only one of those required him to move.

One momentary lapse in concentration cost Major League Soccer's Real Salt Lake everything on Wednesday night. That moment came in the dying seconds of the first half at Rio Tinto Stadium, in Sandy, Utah, where Real came into the second leg of its CONCACAF Champions League final against Monterrey of Mexico unbeaten at home in 37 games since 2009. But the streak crumbled and Real's hopes of winning the regional championship and advancing to the FIFA Club World Cup in December fell apart at the feet of veteran Chilean striker Humberto Suazo.

The Galaxy's high-octane offense sputtered to a stop at the worst possible time Thursday, running out of gas just outside Salt Lake City to halt the team's chances for an unprecedented third consecutive Major League Soccer championship. Outplayed and outworked over 120 minutes by a determined Real Salt Lake, the Galaxy was ultimately outscored as well, dropping a 2-0 decision and losing the two-leg Western Conference semifinal, 2-1, on aggregate goals at a frigid Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

The Galaxy is going to the Major Soccer League playoffs, that much has been decided. But it will need the rest of the regular season to determine whether it goes as a second-, third- or fourth-place team, which is of no small consequence given the league's unforgiving playoff format. That pre-postseason push got off to bad start Saturday, though, with Fabian Espindola scoring twice in a three-minute span midway through the first half to lift Real Salt Lake to a 2-1 victory over the Galaxy in front of a sellout crowd of 27,000 at the Home Depot Center.
