Colorado Rapids vs. Real Salt Lake - Man Of The Match Vote

Colorado has the Rocky Mountain Cup, who helped them get it back the most?

So, that happened on Saturday. A crazy, wet and wild game saw the RMC return to Colorado, but who was the Man of the Match for the Rapids?

I'm going to toss out two candidates for this one, please feel free to add anyone else you think is eligible in the comments and vote 'other' on the poll.

Deshorn Brown - Who's That?! Deshorn had perhaps the best game of his young career on Saturday, netting a super goal and making dangerous runs all game long. It didn't hurt that he's scored two goals in three games against Real Salt Lake. Will Brown be the new Lion-Slayer in the vein of Conor Casey? That'll take a few more years to figure out, but he's been great against RSL.

Shane O'Neill - The talismanic young defender has already impressed everyone at center back and right back this season, and had a fine game playing as a defensive midfielder (the position he was being trained at all of last season) on Saturday in the first half. He got even better in the second half when Marvell Wynne was dragged off and he was put into the right back spot. If not for Nick Rimando being Nick Rimando, he would have finally netted his first Rapids goal.

Who do you have as your Man of the Match?
