MLS Regular Season
Dillon Powers' third goal of the season - the opener against Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday - is among the nominees for the AT&T MLS Goal of the Week.
Having received a deflected Marvell Wynne cross, the 2013 MLS Rookie of the Year swiftly turned Russell Teibert and clinically finished beyond David Ousted.
COLORADO RAPIDS vs VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC
Note: Vancouver current form does not include June 25 draw vs Montreal Impact.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo.- In Tuesday night’s wild 2-1 US Open Cup defeat to the Atlanta Silverbacks at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, four red cards were handed out, both head coaches were ejected and a 55-minute lightning delay paused the action. But rather than focus on the craziness during the match, postgame, Rapids head coach Pablo Mastroeni chose to focus on two defensive lapses as the primary culprit for Tuesday’s surprise defeat.
To enhance the already unique experience at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, the Colorado Rapids have implemented a family-friendly area just outside of Eighteen76 called SoccerFest.
SoccerFest is a collection of games and entertainment for kids and parents to enjoy before Rapids matches. The area features two soccer inflatables, a DJ, and a face-painting station. The inflatables include a soccer field and shot challenge, which give kids the opportunity to test their soccer skills.
The Colorado Rapids return to MLS action when they host the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday, June 28 at 7 p.m in a match presented by Westerra Credit Union. This is the Rapids’ first MLS regular season match since June 7, when the league began a break in the schedule for the World Cup group stage. The first 2,500 fans inside the stadium will recieve a cinch bag courtesy of Westerra Credit Union. TICKETS.
No sooner had the Colorado Rapids exited the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night, then attention began turning to the visit of Vancouver Whitecaps this Saturday to Dick's Sporting Goods Park (TICKETS) and the resumption of MLS.
MLS returns to Dick's Sporting Goods Park this Saturday, with the Colorado Rapids hosting Vancouver Whitecaps (kick-off 7 p.m), and fans can take advantage of some fantastic deals.
