Tooele girls soccer vs. Kearns

Makenna McCloy scored her first goal of the season and Maddy Lyman picked up the shutout in goal as the Tooele girls soccer team defeated Kearns 1-0 in its home opener Thursday at Tooele High School. The Buffaloes (1-1) played host to Juab in a non-region contest Tuesday. They will travel to Bluffdale to face Summit Academy in another non-region game Thursday afternoon.

Real Salt Lake

RSL announced the firing of head coach Mike Petke on Sunday. Petke had been suspended by the team for the past two weeks for a postgame altercation with referees following a loss to Mexican side Tigres UANL in the Leagues Cup on July 21. Major League Soccer fined Petke $25,000 for the incident, which included the utterance of a homophobic slur in Spanish directed at the officials. “After further deliberations and a series of constructive discussions internally and with various members of our community, we have concluded, pursuant to his employment agreement, to immediately terminate Mike Petke’s employment,” RSL said in a statement Sunday. Assistant coach Freddy Juarez will be the interim head coach through the end of the 2019 season, where Real Salt Lake (11-9-4) currently sits sixth in the Western Conference, tied with the fifth-place LA Galaxy with 37 points. RSL is a point ahead of seventh-place FC Dallas and three points ahead of eighth-place Portland, with the top seven teams advancing to the postseason.

Utah Royals FC

URFC picked up a much-needed 3-1 win over Reign FC on Sunday at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, Washington, moving the Royals within two points of Reign FC for the fourth and final postseason berth in the National Women’s Soccer League. Katie Stengel scored in the third minute for Utah (7-6-3, 24 points), while Lo’eau LaBonta broke a 1-1 tie with her goal in the 59th minute and Amy Rodriguez added an insurance goal in the 67th. The Royals will face the Orlando Pride on Saturday in Orlando, Florida. Their next home game is Sept. 6 against Portland Thorns FC at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy.
