Jefferson Savarino scored two of Real Salt Lake’s five unanswered goals in a 6-2 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on Tuesday night.

Real Salt Lake (6-12-2) won at the StubHub Center for the first time since March 8, 2014.

Los Angeles (6-8-4) lost for just the sixth time in 22 matches on July 4 but fell to 1-5-3 at home this season.

RSL had a 2-1 lead at halftime after goals by Albert Rusnak and Kyle Beckerman. In the 36th minute, Rusnak was left uncovered and he took three touches to send it past Clement Diop for a 1-0 lead.

Beckerman was left alone on Rusnak’s corner kick in stoppage time and headed it home.

In the second half, RSL scored four goals in 19 minutes. Yura Movsisyan redirected a cross in the 62nd minute, Savarino drove in a shot from distance in the 72nd and knocked in a rebound a few minutes later, and Joao Plata capped it with an individual effort in the 80th.

Los Angeles scored on Ashley Cole’s close-range shot in the 41st and Bradford Jamieson’s deflected shot in the 89th.

Usa Fencing to Set New Records at Summer Nationals in Salt Lake, July 1-10

(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – The 2017 USA Fencing National Championships and July Challenge is set to break new records when the world’s largest fencing tournament comes to Salt Lake City from July 1-10.

The 10-day event will draw an estimated 4,222 fencers from 47 states and 428 clubs. With 8,877 entries approved for the event, the tournament could surpass the 12-day 2014 USA Fencing National Championships as the largest fencing tournament in history.

“Salt Lake City has been a great host to USA Fencing athletes and families at Championships and North American Cups over the last two Olympic cycles and we are pleased to have this opportunity to bring the world’s largest fencing tournament to Utah,” said USA Fencing Senior Director of Operations Christine Strong-Simmons (Colorado Springs, Colo.) “We are so excited to partner with Visit Salt Lake and the Utah Sports Commission to make the Summer Nationals an outstanding experience in the host city for the 2002 Olympic Games.”

Competition will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Halls 1-5 with medals awarded daily. All events are free and open to the public.

“It is great having USA Fencing host its national tournament here in Utah,” said Jeff Robbins, president and CEO of the Utah Sports Commission. “This event continues to build our brand as ‘The State of Sport’ and we know it will have significant economic impact to our state.”

The USA Fencing National Championships features individual competition in categories from Youth 10 to Veteran +70 with athletes ranging from ages eight to 94. The July Challenge includes Division I, Junior and Cadet individual events as well as a senior team competition. Both tournaments include events in all three weapons: epee, foil and saber.

With the top fencers in the nation competing at the Salt Palace, eight of the 84 events being contested will field more than 200 competitors each. Y14 men’s foil and Junior men’s epee are scheduled to be the largest events of the tournament with 284 and 281 competitors, respectively.

Not only will national titles be awarded in Salt Lake, but the Summer Nationals serves as the final selection tournament for the 2017 Veteran World Championship Team with the top four athletes on the National Team Point Standings in the 50-59, 60-69 and +70 age categories earning the opportunity to represent Team USA.

In addition to the competition taking place in Salt Lake City, nine members of the 2016 and 2012 U.S. Olympic Team will be in town to train in preparation for the 2017 Senior World Championships which begin in Leipzig, Germany on July 19. The men’s and women’s foil team as well as the women’s epee team will be training in Salt Lake, including:

Alexander Massialas (San Francisco, Calif. / Men’s Foil), 2016 Olympic individual silver medalist and team bronze medalist Gerek Meinhardt (San Francisco, Calif. / Men’s Foil), 2016 Olympic team bronze medalist and three-time Senior World medalist Miles Chamley-Watson (New York City, N.Y. / Men’s Foil), 2016 Olympic team bronze medalist and 2013 Senior World Champion Race Imboden (Brooklyn, N.Y. / Men’s Foil), 2016 Olympic team bronze medalist and 2015-16 Overall World Cup Champion Kelley Hurley (San Antonio, Texas / Women’s Epee), 2012 Olympic team bronze medalist and three-time individual Pan American Champion Courtney Hurley (San Antonio, Texas / Women’s Epee), 2012 Olympic team bronze medalist and three-time individual Pan American Champion Lee Kiefer (Lexington, Ky. / Women’s Foil), two-time Olympian and 2011 Senior World bronze medalist Kat Holmes (Washington, D.C. / Women’s Epee), 2016 Olympian and 2015 Pan American Games Team Champion Nicole Ross (New York City, N.Y. / Women’s Foil), 2012 Olympian and three-time individual World Cup medalist

The Men’s and Women’s Foil National Teams will be hosting clinics for young fencers on July 7. The next generation of top saber fencers will have a rare opportunity as well when two-time Olympic Champion Mariel Zagunis (Beaverton, Ore.) holds a series of clinics between July 7-9.

On July 4, members of the fencing community will celebrate Independence Day at the USA Fencing Hall of Fame Ceremony where Olympians and World Team members will be among those inducted into the 2017 induction class.

Utah also is home to a thriving fencing community with more than 80 athletes from seven clubs competing in their home state.

Among the local athletes to watch are a trio of epee fencers from Schoolhouse Fencing in West Valley City who have each represented Team USA at the Junior and Cadet World Championships. Eighteen-year-old Tatijana Stewart (Ogden, Utah / Junior & Division I) brought home two medals from her debut at the Cadet World Championships in 2016 where she won silver in the individual and gold in the team competition for the best U17 fencers in the world. Wes Johnson (Pleasant View, Utah / Division I) won the 2017 Pan American Junior Championships and went on to earn a fourth place finish at the 2017 Junior Worlds in April. Dylan Nollner (Ogden, Utah / Division I) was the program’s first Junior World Team member, placing in the top 16 in 2012 and going on to earn two-time All-American honors at Duke in 2013 and 2014.

Athletes from Utah Swords Academy Fencing Club, Wasatch Fencing, Utah Fencing Academy, Park City Fencing Academy, JJL Fencing Club and Salle D’ Escrime Utah Valley also will compete in Salt Lake City.

Utah Tourism Officials Jab Warriors with Playful Video After Team Complained That There’s Nothing to Do in Salt Lake City

Rick Bowmer/AP

Salt Lake City tourism officials had some fun with the Golden State Warriors after the team complained about the lack of nightlife in Salt Lake City, Utah, in preparation for their series against the Jazz.

On Wednesday, the tourism agency launched a website and video called “There’s nothing to do in Salt Lake.”

The video shows a montage of breweries, bars, restaurants, and events in Salt Lake as phrases like “No drinking” and “No dining” flash across the screen.

Prior to the second-round series, ESPN’s Chris Haynes reported the Warriors were disappointed they wouldn’t play the Los Angeles Clippers because there’s more to do in Los Angeles in their off-time.

“There’s no nightlife in Utah,” Matt Barnes said. “Obviously, as players, you want to be able to have a little bit of a nightlife, but the main focus is winning games. … You sit in your room. I think there’s an Olive Garden out there and then a Benihana.”

Andre Iguodala said, “The problem with Utah is that you’re just sitting there and your mind is, like, dead, because in L.A., you still got energy for the game. Because you’re in L.A., you’re like, ‘Man, this is just the vibe in L.A.’ but in Utah, it can kind of lull you to sleep.”

According to the Associated Press, Scott Beck, president of Visit Salt Lake wrote a letter to the Warriors, saying, “In case you do stumble across something to do while here in Salt Lake, all of our bartenders and servers are on notice to keep you up late!”

Salt Lake City Supercross – the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

250 Class
The Good: Justin Hill | 3rd Place

Justin Hill is your 2017 250 West Coast Champion! I really didn’t expect for him to be crowned as the champ a week early, but a crash from Aaron Plessinger gave him the points he needed to go ahead and claim the number one plate. It’s been a long time coming for Justin, that’s for sure. He’s been in the class for five years, and while he’s periodically shown that he’s fast and capable of winning, he’s also struggled to stay consistent and healthy. This year, though, things were very different. Yes, he was a little off the pace at the first few rounds as he recovered from a shoulder injury, but he started to really turn things up at round three in Anaheim and clicked off four straight wins. Combine those wins with Shane McElrath’s unfortunate mechanical issue in Arlington, and he had a pretty nice points gap with three rounds left. He managed that points gap in Seattle, and then he was able to wrap it all up in Salt Lake City.

No doubt a well-deserved championship for both Justin Hill and Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki. This is, after all, Mitch’s first Supercross championship since 2011. That’s a very rare drought for Mitch and company, but luckily it’s over now. Now, could we see Pro Circuit claim the East Coast Championship as well? We’ll have to wait and see.

The Good Bonus: Troy Lee Designs KTM

Man, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM has had a breakout year. All four of the team’s riders have podiumed, and two have won. That’s a big step up for KTM’s somewhat new factory 250 effort, which has seen improvement in race results every year since taking over the program.

Anyway, Shane McElrath rode one heck of a race to claim the victory, while Mitchell Oldenburg came through the pack to grab second. We can only wonder what may have happened if Oldenburg hadn’t been injured during practice in San Diego. In his two races back, he’s been on the podium both times and has had the pace to challenge for the win. His starts haven’t been that great, but that’s what makes these rides even more impressive. It’ll be interesting to see what he (and Shane) can do in 2018. For now, though, the team’s focus will shift over to the 250 East Coast Championship, where Jordon Smith is still in the hunt for the title.

The Bad: The Championship is Over

Like I said, it’s awesome that Justin Hill won the title, but I prefer to watch the championships go down to the wire in Las Vegas. I mean, that’s what every fan wants, right? A close title fight all that way down to the end. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Oh well, at least Justin has nothing to lose in Vegas. Maybe he’ll hang it out and claim the East/West Shootout win like he did in 2014.

The Ugly: Aaron Plessinger | 22nd Place

It was going so well for Plessinger… running at the front until he went down hard in the whoops. Just like that, he was done for the night, and so were his championship hopes. He had an outside shot at the championship, but I’m sure he wanted to take it to Vegas and put the pressure on Justin to make a mistake. He did show that he has the speed to absolutely dominate this class over the past two weeks, but it just wasn’t mean to happen this year. I’d bet some serious dough that he’s going to be a heavy title favorite no matter which coast he’s on next year, though.

450 Class
The Good: Eli Tomac | 1st Place

Salt Lake City provided us with the best main event of the 2017 Supercross season, and it’s all thanks to Eli Tomac. He was around 18th going into the first corner. Yes, 18th! He then sliced through the field pretty well on the first lap, crossing the line in around tenth place. From there, we witnessed one of the best charges in quite a while. He was around one second a lap faster than everyone else, every lap. That kind of pace got him up into second pretty quickly, and then right onto the back of Ryan Dungey. It wasn’t a long battle, by any means, but it was the battle that we’ve been wanting to see for weeks now. After doing a bit of dicing back and forth, Tomac was able to make the pass stick in the corner after the whoops (which is where he made the majority of his passes) and opened up a four-second gap within about two laps. At that point he looked like he was out for a Sunday cruise and went on to win his ninth race of the season, and take sole control of the red plate…which he’ll be looking to hold onto until Las Vegas.

This main event reminded me a lot of a couple of older races. First up is Toronto 2014, where James Stewart came from way back to take the win. As far as Tomac’s career goes, though, his ride in Salt Lake City reminded me of his Las Vegas ride in 2013. He took a couple of laps to get going, but once he was rolling there was no way he was going to be denied the win. Watch ’em. They’re well worth it.

The sad truth is that races like the one we got in Salt Lake don’t happen all that often, but it’ll be one that we’ll remember for a long, long time.

The Bad: Ryan Dungey | 2nd Place

Hey, remember a while back when I said it wasn’t time to press the panic button yet? Well, I think it’s time to press the panic button, or maybe even smash it with a hammer. The start of the main event was perfect for Dungey. He got a good start and moved his way into the lead on the first lap, and Eli Tomac was buried. But that’s about as good as it got for him, as Tomac ripped through the field, passed him, and then dropped him. This race had to put a dent in Dungey’s confidence, and you gotta wonder how much he’s willing to hang it out in these last two races to try and claim his third straight title. He’s been the hunted all season, but now he is the hunter. Could that change his mentality some? We’ll see.

The Ugly: Justin Bogle | 21st Place

Another rough weekend for Justin. It seems like I’ve been saying (or at least thinking) that phrase a lot this season. It hasn’t gone anything like Justin was probably envisioning before the season started. Crashes, mediocre finishes, and a few minor injuries pretty much sum up the year for him. He has had a few semi wins which is nice, but that’s probably not all what he wants to accomplish in the 450 class. The most frustrating part about this season for Justin has to be that he’s been pretty dang fast. Speed is not the problem here. But the random crashes and occasional bad starts have really made it look rather disappointing on paper. I’m not sure if Justin will be back at RCH Suzuki next year, but I definitely think that he deserves at least one more season on a full factory bike. There’s a lot of potential in him, he just hasn’t fully unlocked it yet.
