Orlando City vs. Colorado Rapids: Highlights, stats, and post-game quotes

Want the tl;dr version of #ORLvCOL?

MLS: Colorado Rapids at Orlando City SC Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

We all knew Orlando City SC was going to be tough to beat. They were 4-0 in their new stadium, and the Colorado Rapids were on a three-game losing streak. The first half was decent defensively - Orlando brought the pressure and Colorado held them off. In the second half, things were still going okay defensively, and Pablo made three reasonable subs, but around the 70th minute, Carlos Rivas broke through with the first Orlando goal. The Burgundy Boys started looking tired and slow, and Kaka netted another in extra time to secure the 2-0 win. With just one shot on goal, the Rapids weren’t able to get anything going offensively (a recurring theme), and got their 4th loss in a row. Read the full recap here.

After this result, the Rapids remain at the bottom of the conference with 4 points (1-5-1), with 5 GF and 11 GA. Colorado is 1-1-1 at home and 0-4-0 away.

Pablo Mastroeni

“I think for large portions of the game, we had good control of it... had our chances to go forward, but we weren’t threatening their goal a whole lot, and I think that was the difference.”

Dillon Serna

“We had some chances that just weren’t clean enough and going forward that’s what gonna separate us from getting three points or possibly losing the game.”

Mekeil Williams

“It’s been a tough string of results for us but the guys gotta remain positive. We can’t feel sorry for ourselves, just gotta find ways to build that and move forward.”
