A horrible performance on the last day of the season sends the Rapids home with a bad taste in their mouth. The matches this week demonstrate how inconsistent the Rapids have been this year. They have potential but no leadership to get them there.

The Rapids park the bus and survive with a 1-0 win after an early Dillon Serna goal.

LaBrocca stands out with a goal and one off the post. He gave it his all during this match finishing with a nice bruise on his forehead from a challenge in the first half.
