Jamison Olave’s stunning volley in Costa Rica was the shot heard round the North American soccer world on Tuesday night as it helped secure Real Salt Lake’s passage into the CONCACAF Champions League final. It’s definitely one of the most memorable goals in team history, but where does it rank all time?

If you are going off of "most memorable" goals, then I have to add Olave's goal in the first game at Rio Tinto Stadium. And what about Will Johnson's goal of the year blast the following game. Some of these goals, like Brown's equalizer, are not really memorable for me.
That being said, good choice on Number 1.

Carey Talley (remember him?) scored on a 30+ yard laser into the upper V that dropped my jaw to the floor. There was also that goal Clint Mathis scored during his second stint with the team on a half volley right out of the air from a corner kick. Bent it into the top corner. A real thing of beauty.
