SALT LAKE CITY – In the 60th minute of Real Salt Lake and Houston’s match on Saturday, the game was delayed due to severe weather in the area.

Just after halftime, rain began pouring down on America First Field.

As soon as the officials saw lightning, the game was stopped for the time being.

RSL trailed by two, 2-0, to Houston when the game was called.

The game resumed approximately 40 minutes after being delayed.

RSL and the Dynamo last faced off in MLS play in early May. The game ended in a scoreless draw.

After Anderson Julio scored the equalizer in the second half of the U.S. Open Cup game, Houston went on to score two unanswered goals.

With the win, Houston secured a spot in the finals against Lionel Messi and Inter Miami. They also earned a spot in next year’s Concacaf Champions Cup.

Four of Real Salt Lake’s next six games will be played at America First Field.

RSL’s last loss in MLS regular season play came on May 31 against the LA Galaxy.

The boys in claret and cobalt will look to extend this streak against the Dynamo.
