Looking Back At The Week That Was At RealLifeSTL
Avengers: Infinity War, Nicolle Galyon, Saint Louis FC and John Legend were just a few of the items that graced the pages of RealLifeSTL this week.
Every Friday, we take a look back at the week that was here at RealLifeSTL. We like to throw in some other tidbits and videos to make your click worthwhile too.
On Monday we recapped Saint Louis FC’s win over Oklahoma City Energy FC last weekend. Jake Fenlason picked up his third clean sheet of the season and Christian Volesky scored the lone tally of the match.
We gave you this sweet animated GIF of Volesky’s goal.
On Tuesday we brought you this week’s edition of the Tuesday Top Five featuring songwriter Nicolle Galyon. The Voice alum is behind some of the top country hits this year like “Female” by Keith Urban and “Tequila” by Dan + Shay.
Here’s Nicolle singing “Consequences,” which she co-wrote with Camila Cabello, Emily Weisband and Amy Wadge.
On Wednesday we previewed this weekend’s USL match between our Chupacabras and the Swope Park Rangers in Kansas City. The Rangers are the USL affiliate of Major League Soccer’s Sporting Kansas City and they will call Children’s Mercy Park home for at least the rest of this season.
Check out our preview of the match between Saint Louis FC and Swope Park.
