Colorado Rapids vs. FC Dallas - Player Ratings

Something wicked happened to the Rapids on Saturday in Frisco as their defense inexplicably let the Burgundy Boys down.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Colorado Rapids made the trek down to Frisco, Texas this past weekend to take on a slumping FC Dallas team who had not won since April.  That recipe should mean for a good chance for the Rapids to pick up some points heading into the three week World Cup break.  However, the Rapids were let down by their defense en route to a 3-2 loss to the Hoops.

Here is how I saw the match:

G Clint Irwin 5

A rough game for the Rapids keeper as he should have done better on the goals and needs to take command of the defense more forcibly.

D Chris Klute 6

No one on the Rapids had a particularly good game after blowing a lead and then getting shredded for the game winner.  For some reason all four lads on the back line struggled.

D Drew Moor 5.5

As the leader of the defense, Moor needs to prevent breakdowns from happening.  Was it too many games in a short period of time?  Unknown, but Moor had an off night.  He did pick up an assist for the match.

D Shane O'Neill 5.5

O'Neill simply looked bad on the night and struggled picking up the FC Dallas offense.  Again, as with Moor, was it a case of too many game this week and he was fatigued?

D Marvell Wynne 6

Wynne needed to provide better cover on some of the FC Dallas runs and just could not get it done on the evening.

M Dillon Serna 6

Serna had a quiet evening but did do well in helping keep the ball.  Was unable to turn that possession into a shot on goal.

M Jose Mari 7

Mari picked up his third goal (but without the Ole! celebration).  Looked good on the night, but needed to get back and help the struggling back line more.

M Nick LaBrocca 6

LaBrocca did well to help the Rapids control the midfield with 60% of the possession favoring the Burgundy Boys, but seemed to struggle getting back to help on defense when it was needed.

M Kamani Hill 6

Hill had a shorter shift on the evening and was subbed early in the second half.  He looks comfortable out there, and the runs were solid, just was not able to get a rhythm going.

F Dillon Powers 7.5

Powers notched another assist as a forward and continues to show that the ROY was not a fluke.

F Deshorn Brown 8

Another goal for Brown, and it is safe to say the duck is firmly off his back and floating down stream.  The kid, when he is on, is electric.

Substitutions

M Marlon Hairston 5.5

I am a fan of Hairston, but not sure he is the guy you put on the pitch for Hill.  Hairston did nothing exciting in his 35 minutes of work.

F Charles Eloundou N/A

Late game cameo for Eloudou.  Why was he not brought in earlier as the Rapids were looking for an equalizer?

F Gabriel Torres N/A

Torres is back in the squad and picked up a minute of play.
