Well, I’ll say this … if only matches were 30 minutes in duration, then we would have returned from the other side of the Rockies with big, beaming smiles spread across our faces.
The Rapids took the lead – with an absolute peach of a strike from José Mari – and held their own for the opening half hour, before conceding the first of five unanswered goals in what would become the heaviest defeat in the history of the Rocky Mountain rivalry.

Overall thoughts on the match:
SANDY, Utah — The Colorado Rapids came into Rio Tinto Stadium on Friday night, poked a finger in Real Salt Lake's eye, and paid for it — quickly.
After taking a 1-0 lead, the Rapids gave up three goals in five minutes and RSL coasted to a 5-1 win and a season sweep of their Rocky Mountain rivals.
