Rapids Snap Winless Streak With Surprise Win

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
The Rapids last road win? Houston (last year). The Rapids last home win? Houston (in July). So of course we should have seen this surprise win coming. Colorado seems to have Houston's number but it wasn't exactly exciting soccer. We saw our first real glimpse of what Aigner can bring to this team, his perfect cross to Badji to set up the winning (and only) goal is a pass we haven't seen often as Rapids fans.

In a brutal home defeat to the last-place Rapids, the Dynamo's showed bright.

The MLS Western Conference playoff race is tight. There is just a five-point difference between 2-6 clubs, and 1st-place Portland (on 44 points, two ahead of Seattle) have played at least two more matches than every other contending team.

The third game will be at the Dick on October so this is the only visit to Utah this year. FSL wins the Cup with a win tomorrow. With a draw the Rapids will have to win the final game by 2 or more.

Rapids Leave It Late In Toppling Timbers

Well, the Rapids have figured out how to win, just not how to win easily. For the third game in a row Colorado had to come from behind to get the three points. Just like the Columbus game, Gordon scored a late header for a 2-1 win. It may not be the prettiest way but it is exciting and gets us 3 points!

Rapids Earn Three Points

Colorado came from behind for the 2-1 win Saturday night, something we hadn't seen yet this season (and not much last season due to the number of 1-0 wins we had). The team was the better squad on the night both watching them and largely on the stat line as well.

Sporting KC is in town tonight and it could be a wet one. Rain and thunderstorms are forecast this afternoon but right now it looks like they might move off before kickoff. This is Colorado though, so you can never really trust the forecast. A very wet tailgate will start at 3 for the odd kickoff time of 6 (not the usual 7).

It won't work.

Nicolas Lodeiro helped reinvent the Seattle Sounders attack. It is potent and multi-faceted, often running through the Uruguayan playmaker's feet. He won the Newcomer of the Year because of his success converting to MLS play and the surge in the standings when the Sounders became his and Brian Schmetzer's team.
