MLS Regular Season
Fitness tests later in the week could determine whether both leading scorer Deshorn Brown and influential Spanish midfielder José Mari are available for selection for Saturday's home game with Real Salt Lake, and the second leg of the Rocky Mountain Cup (TICKETS).
Those who came out to honor club legend Pablo Mastroeni on Friday night were rewarded with a treat. Not only did they get to share a special evening with one of the club’s most loyal servants, but they then witnessed three cracking goals as the Rapids players applied the icing to the Mastroeni celebratory cake with a 3-0 win over Chivas USA.
Pablo Mastroeni, Colorado Rapids Head Coach
On the Gallery of Honor ceremony:
It was a beautiful evening. It was great to have my family and friends in town and cap it off with a wonderful performance from the guys.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Maybe the Rapids just saved their best for Pablo.
On the night the Colorado Rapids inducted head coach Pablo Mastroeni into their Gallery of Honor, his team put together arguably their most complete all-around performance of the season, lashing a weakened Chivas USA 3-0 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Friday night, snapping a three-game winless skid in the process.
Welcome to Pablo Mastroeni Night here at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park! Tonight’s game, presented by MetroPCS, is a great chance to celebrate the career of one of the best American players ever, and a true Rapids legend. We are glad that so many of you have come out to enjoy the pregame ceremony with Pablo and his family, and see the unveiling of his name in our Gallery of Honor. For somebody who has meant so much to this club and this state, it’s wonderful that we’re able to recognize his achievements on the field for the Rapids.
