I thought that we did enough defensively to keep them from scoring. We had maybe three quality chances in the first half. One was turned into a second chance when Jackson got in the way of the shot, brought it down, and kicked it over.

Well after today's big trade news, back to Saturday's game. I predicted a 2-1 scoreline, which we got, but with the wrong team winning. The Rapids put themselves in a hole early and while they almost got out of it they came up just a bit short.
The first half was generally ugly soccer from both sides but particularly ugly from Colorado.

Apologies for the late recap. I was out in Earthquakes-land at my company's other office for the first part of the week. Since its so late I won't spend a lot of time on the recap of the game itself. The first half was pretty benign with neither team getting a really good look. The second half was probably fun to watch as a neutral as both teams were going at it, which resulted in 4 goals in 10 minutes.

We came out in level two defending to force them to beat us... and they weren't able to connect with many chances. I think they got frustrated. Second half, they came at us with a lot of different weapons. The diagonal ball to Atiba [Harris] was their number one play where Atiba was trying to hit it back against the grain.
