SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis has said it many times: "Soccer can be a cruel sport."

That he had to say it again Tuesday night, though, doesn't make it any less true.

Despite a statistically strong showing, the Claret-and-Cobalt were held to a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica's Herediano, allowing the visitors to go through at RSL's expense.

HOUSTON – In a match that was shrouded in frustration over poor play and questionable refereeing, an appeal for calm is what proved decisive.

After a first half that had the Houston Dynamo reeling both mentally and on the scoreboard on Tuesday night, the MLS side regrouped at halftime despite being 1-0 down to Honduran club Olimpia and on the brink of eilmination from the CONCACAF Champions League.

SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake saw their CONCACAF Champions League hopes dashed by Herediano on Tuesday night, as the Costa Ricans walked away from a packed Rio Tinto Stadium with a 0-0 draw and a berth in the quarterfinal stage.

Knowing they just needed a draw to advance, the visitors' plan was evident not long after the opening whistle, often putting 10 or 11 players behind the ball, even though a goal would have forced RSL to score at least three times.

HOUSTON – The Houston Dynamo booked their place into the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals after coming from behind to tie Honduran side Olimpia 1-1 on Tuesday night at BBVA Compass Stadium.

For the second time in CCL group play, Olimpia found out just how dangerous Houston's Nathan Sturgis can be on a corner. In the 65th minute of the Group 3 finale, Sturgis delivered a ball to fellow central defender Andre Hainault and the Canadian snapped a header into the goal to secure the result Houston needed.
