COLUMBUS, Ohio — Kickoff for tonights Real Salt Lake at Columbus Crew match has been pushed back an hour because of power outages in the Columbus area.

The match will now kick off at 7 p.m. on Ch. 30.

Severe winds knocked out power in several parts of Columbus on Friday, including the area surrounding Crew Stadium.

Real Salt Lake has lost two straight matches, and is hoping for a bounce-back victory tonight against the Crew. RSL is 4-2-2 on the road this year, but will be without suspended midfielder Kyle Beckerman and injured players Jamison Olave and Ned Grabavoy.
