A win, regardless of the opponent, feels pretty darn nice. For the Colorado Rapids it was quite the tonic that was needed after a couple of weeks of difficult results. The 4-1 victory over Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC was the kind of win that gives some hope going back into MLS play this Friday at home against FC Dallas.
Although, and I have to say this, is there something written that says a red card must be shown in the US Open Cup at Dick's Sporting Goods Park?
And Claudio Lopez is now 2-0-0 as an interim coach with a goal differential of +7. (Pablo Mastroeni was suspended for this one due to, you guessed it, a red card as coach in his last US Open cup match way back in 2014. Yikes)
So who was your Colorado Rapids Man of the Match? Was it Joseph Greenspan? Or perhaps Zac MacMath? Let your voice be heard Rapids fans!
