In RSL’s diamond midfield Kyle’s vision has helped start a lot of attacks that lead to dangerous chances for Salt Lake. He is quick to get the ball from the defense and send it up field to start counter attacking opportunities. Jean Alexandre has filled in admirably on the defensive end but he lacks the decisiveness of Beckerman and has not been able to duplicate Kyle’s creative abilities from that same position. Jean may have lost the starting spot this weekend when he was replaced at halftime by Ned Grabavoy and his side preformed much better as a result and though Jean is a little better defender Ned can provide the better possession for which Salt Lake prides itself. The last time these two teams met Kyle had RSL’s lone goal and he will be sorely missed this week as either Ned or Jean will be asked to try to fill that void.
