Matchday welcome

Rapids fans,

Welcome to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park this afternoon. It’s hard to believe that this is our final home match of the 2014 season, and I am very thankful to all of you who have come to support the team this entire season. It’s been a tough second half to the season, and although we know it will end without a playoff run, we will still compete for results on the field this afternoon and next weekend, and your presence today plays a huge role in that effort.

The Colorado Rapids return to Dick's Sporting Goods Park for the final time this season, when they tackle FC Dallas this Saturday, kick-off 1 p.m MT (TICKETS)

They are seeking to end a winless streak that now stands at 12 games, following last weekend's 2-1 reversal at Chivas USA.

Colorado Rapids defender Thomas Piermayr will miss the remaining two games of the season after sustaining a grade 2 medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprain during last Saturday's 2-1 loss at Chivas USA.

The Austrian experienced pain in his left knee in the early stages of the match, and after evaluating him on the sideline, Head Athletic Trainer Jaime Rojas determined Piermayr was unable to continue.

An MRI scan has since shown the damage to be a sprained MCL, an injury which will require approximately six weeks for recovery.

Just before halftime of Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Chivas USA, with the Colorado Rapids in control of their contest and leading through a John Neeskens goal, I questioned whether they may regret not having more than a one goal lead due to their dominance in the opening 45 minutes.

Thoughts on the match:
“I think we had a really bright start, the guys pressured very well. I think the first half was very solid. I think we came out at the start of the second half, trying to find our legs a bit and control the game again. For the most part, we did a good job at that. I think we defended quite poorly on both [Chivas USA] goals. Looking at the stats sheet, we have 21 opportunities created, we have a lot of winning crosses, a lot of good stuff that happened amongst that game.

CARSON, Calif. -- Despite dominating for the first hour, and leading through a first MLS goal for John Neeskens, the Colorado Rapids conceded twice in the second half to lose 2-1 at Chivas USA on their way to a 12th game without a win.

Félix Borja scored the game-winner for the second consecutive game as the Goats erased a first-half deficit to beat the reeling Colorado Rapids, 2-1, on Saturday night at StubHub Center.
