As Real Salt Lake and Colorado Rapids prepare to resume hostilities this Sunday, here is a summarized review of the Rocky Mountain Cup history, which began with a meeting at Rice-Eccles Stadium, on April 16, 2005.

Played out in front of more than 25,000 fans, Real Salt Lake snatched a late winner in a 1-0 victory, courtesy of a rare goal from Brian Dunseth. The Rapids team that day included three players who would represent both clubs - Ritchie Kotschau, Nat Borchers (now at Portland Timbers) and Kyle Beckerman.

The Rapids lineup for that opening contest was as follows:

Colorado Rapids slipped to a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Portland Timbers at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night.
 
The home side thought they had grabbed a dramatic equalizer when Sam Cronin blasted in a volley with seven seconds left of normal time.
 
However, as Rapids sought the winner, Portland broke away and Jack Jewsbury slid home the winner with the final kick of the game.

It has been a busy week of differing emotions for Colorado Rapids. Victory over Vancouver last weekend ended a long run without a home win. Relief was palpable. In midweek, a moment of brilliance saw Seattle squeeze out victory on their tricky turf. Frustration was obvious.

Colorado Rapids Forward, Kevin Doyle (#9)

On his debut start...

It was nice obviously to start but you want to win or draw the game or get something from it and we didn’t so you don’t enjoy it when that's the case.

On the difference playing in Seattle compared to Colorado altitude and then artificial turf:

Colorado Rapids finally lost their unbeaten record on the road when they went down 1-0 at Seattle on Wednesday.

Before kickoff, Pablo Mastroeni’s side were the only MLS side yet to taste defeat away from home, having got at least a point at Philadelphia, Houston, Dallas, New York and LA Galaxy so far this term.
