  • Sky Blue FC knocked the second-seeded Washington Spirit out of the NWSL Challenge Cup on Saturday, winning a shootout after 90 scoreless minutes in a quarterfinal matchup. Sky Blue won, 4-3, in penalty kicks as goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan saved a shot from Bayley Feist to clinch the victory and send her team to the semifinals.

    Sky Blue will face either the Chicago Red Stars or OL Reign in the semifinals, and the Spirit’s loss means both of the tournament’s top two seeds were knocked out in the quarterfinals. The Portland Thorns beat the top-seeded North Carolina Courage on Friday.

    The Spirit had more chances in regulation. They outshout Sky Blue, 12-8, and Washington put seven shots on goal. The game was the second in a row to go to penalties after a scoreless 90 minutes in the Challenge Cup. The Houston Dash beat the Utah Royals in a shootout on Friday night, and they’ll face the Thorns in the bracket’s other semifinal on Wednesday.

    In This Story: Utah

    Utah is a state in the western United States.

    The territory of modern Utah has been inhabited by various indigenous groups for thousands of years, including the ancient Puebloans, the Navajo, and the Ute. The Spanish were the first Europeans to arrive in the mid-16th century, though the region’s difficult geography and climate made it a peripheral part of New Spain and later Mexico.

    Disputes between the dominant Mormon community and the federal government delayed Utah’s admission as a state; only after the outlawing of polygamy was it admitted as the 45th, in 1896.

    A little more than half of all Utahns are Mormons, the vast majority of whom are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which has its world headquarters in Salt Lake City. Utah is the only state where most of the population belongs to a single church. The LDS Church greatly influences Utahn culture, politics, and daily life, though since the 1990s the state has become more religiously diverse as well as secular.

    The state has a highly diversified economy, with major sectors including transportation, education, information technology and research, government services, and mining and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation.

    A 2012 Gallup national survey found Utah overall to be the “best state to live in the future” based on 13 forward-looking measurements including various economic, lifestyle, and health-related outlook metrics.
