The U.S. Women’s National Team is back in Denver, this time to take on New Zealand in a friendly on Friday. The match starts at 8:00 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN 2. Tickets are still available here.
Local Coloradans Mal Pugh and Lindsay Horan are also in town with the team and our very own Rapids Rabbi was able to interview them, so check back tomorrow for his article!
In the meantime, Burgundy Wave photographer John A. Babiak was able to watch the first 15 minutes of practice yesterday and got a few pictures. Several U-17 Rapids Academy boys were asked to come out with the team, and while we don’t have photos of all of them, what a cool opportunity for Dalio Pekovic, Brandon Farmelo, Logan Dorsey, Carlos Vasquez, and Sebastian Anderson - congrats guys!
