Houston Dynamo 1 Colorado Rapids 0 - Lol Preseason

The Colorado Rapids shuffled the deck a bit to start their game against the Houston Dynamo on Thursday night, but the end result was just about as blah as Game No. 1 against Portland.

Only a minute into the game, we saw our first goal. The Rapids had the pressure for about 50 seconds, but a quick counter-attack led to Jason Johnson feeding Calum Elliot with nobody in front of him. Steward Ceus couldn't do much about the shot, and the Rapids ended up with a 1-0 loss.

Unsurprisingly, it was a very chippy game right from the outset and a lot of takeaways and set pieces were the result. Colorado couldn't find that goal they wanted in the first half, but they had plenty of chances through Tony Cascio and Kory Kindle on the left side of the field.

The second half brought the attack of the trialists for the Rapids with Brendon Griffiths, Cesar Romero, Clint Irwin and Walter Martinez on the pitch.

Bless their hearts, those trialists tried their hardest to get that goal back. There was plenty of good attacking play out of the group, with Cesar Romero getting the best of the chances through the half, but they couldn't find the final touch they needed and the game predictably sputtered to a 1-0 final.

The only problem with the game, of course, was ANTHONY WALLACE INJURED HIMSELF AGAIN OH MY GOD I WILL KICK YOU IN YOUR JELLO ANKLES, WALLY.

...OK, I said it, I feel better.
