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.

The 11 which took to the field for the Colorado Rapids' most recent home game, a 0-0 draw against Chicago Fire, raised a few eyebrows. Eight changes were made to the side which had 73 hours earlier overwhelmed Houston Dynamo 3-0 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

A week is a long time in sport. After Montreal Impact and Houston Dynamo were comfortably dealt with by the Rapids, thoughts of heading into the mini World Cup break on a huge high were dealt a bit of a blow with a draw and a loss in the two most recent outings.

Bizarrely, the defeat at FC Dallas on Saturday was easier to swallow than the tie with Chicago Fire three days earlier. A more familiar-looking lineup had greater threat in the final third, netting two well-worked goals, but ultimately fell short.
