Group D

Real Salt Lake 2, Kansas City Wizards 0

2008 SUM U-17 Cup champion Real Salt Lake advanced to the 2010 semifinals by winning Group D Tuesday, downing the Kansas City Wizards 2-0 to finish group play 2-0-1.

Controlling the game, RSL opened the scoring in the 27th minute when Richard Haddock broke in alone on Kansas City goalkeeper Jonathan Kempin and slotted the ball low inside the right-hand post.

Kansas City never seriously threatened to break through the Salt Lake backline, and RSL put the game away with a well-taken goal in the 49th minute, when Junior Jbopau crossed for Cole Nagy, who settled the ball on his chest, dribbled around Kempin, and slotted the ball home to wrap up Salt Lake’s trip to the semis.
