As Colorado Rapids ready themselves to meet San Jose Earthquakes at home this Friday, kickoff 8:00 p.m MT (TICKETS), we take a look at some of the people who have played a part for both clubs.

Junior Agogo: joined the Rapids in 2000, following just one game at Chicago Fire. He made 32 appearances, scoring 11 goals (7 assists), before departing for San Jose in June, 2001 in a trade which brought Chris Carrieri in the other direction.

There is a tangible defiance about the Colorado Rapids right now. Bobby Burling personified it at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday when he was plucked from the bench minutes before kickoff and handed the armband. In a week of arduous travel, the veteran center back could have done without such rushed preparation as he faced up to Bradley Wright-Phillips, last season’s MLS top scorer.

Ninety minutes later, Burling was voted Man of the Match by the Rapids’ Twitterati.

Colorado Rapids face a quick turnaround, and a lengthy journey as they head to California to face LA Galaxy on Saturday night, seeking to extend their unbeaten road run to five games.

This will be the first of two meetings with the Galaxy this season - the other is at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on August 1 - and follows the side’s 1-1 draw at New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.

Colorado Rapids maintained their unbeaten run on the road with a 1-1 draw at New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.

Gabriel Torres nodded home his third goal of the season to put Pablo Mastroeni’s side ahead in the 25th minute. But Bradley Wright-Phillips equalized from the penalty spot five minutes later.

Rapids had chances in the remainder of the first half. New York carved out opportunities in the second.

Both sides will argue they deserved three points, which might mean that one each was just about fair.

With his 25th minute headed goal at the Red Bulls, the 26-year-old Panama international striker Gabriel Torres matched the goal tally achieved in 2013 and 2014. He notched three goals and one assist in 2013, from seven appearances (five starts), after joining in early August of that year.

On the result:

We had enough chances in this game to win it. I think we created some things. We were let down by a few situations out on the field that could have easily gone our way that change the course of the game, but that's football. We control what we can. I think the effort was spectacular. The guys executed what we wanted to achieve here almost to a 'T' here, the only thing lacking was scoring that second goal.

On it being a better result given the strong opponent:

Nick LaBrocca labels New York Red Bulls a 'dangerous side' ahead of the meeting at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday night, as the Colorado Rapids look to maintain their solid road form.

The Rapids have picked up five of their seven points away from Dick's Sporting Goods, with goalless draws at Philadelphia Union and Houston Dynamo, before a blistering 4-0 win at FC Dallas.
