Most weeks I try to hit around 800 words for my post-match column, but I’m at a loss to conjure-up anything new in terms of analysis. Part of me was tempted to take last week’s View from the Booth, open a page to embed a new article and simply press Ctrl/C on my keyboard.

Colorado Rapids skipper Drew Moor will be out for the remainder of the season after an MRI scan on Monday revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and lateral meniscus. He joins fellow-central defender Shane O’Neill on the sidelines. O’Neill received platelet-rich plasma injections on Monday to help facilitate healing of a troublesome sprained right knee.

goal of the week

Dillon Serna is unlikely to score a better goal this season than the one which lit up RFK Stadium on Sunday night, and it is only right that he be among the five contenders for AT&T MLS Goal of the Week.

WASHINGTON – A different opponent brought a similar tale for the Colorado Rapids, who - for the fourth time in a row - fell behind inside the first 15 minutes on their way to a fourth defeat in a row.

This time it was D.C. United who were grateful for an early gift en route to bouncing back from two road reversals to top the Rapids 4-2 on Sunday night, in front of 12,814 fans at RFK Stadium.

For some teams in the Western Conference, the playoff places are within touching distance. For others, there is still much work to do and finger-nails to bite before a place in the top five is assured.

Leaders Seattle Sounders sit pretty on 41 points, and - barring a late-season implosion on the scale of last year - Sigi Schmid's side should be in the mix. You could say the same for Real Salt Lake and perhaps FC Dallas who are both within five points of top spot.
