MLS Regular Season
To Rapids Supporters:
Some of my comments from immediately following Saturday night’s game require clarification, and I’m glad to be able to do so here and now. I care deeply about this club, winning games, and taking home trophies, especially the Rocky Mountain Cup, and I want this passion to be as clear now that I’m a coach as it was when I was playing.
I’m heading out on a limb here, and suggesting Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Real Salt Lake – an outcome which gifted the Rocky Mountain Cup back to RSL – will have hurt Rapids fans more than any of the other seven losses this season.
Pablo Mastroeni, Colorado Rapids Head Coach
On losing the match despite creating chances:
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- The Colorado Rapids surrendered the Rocky Mountain Cup, and slipped six points behind their rivals after failing to find a way past 10-man Real Salt Lake at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night.
Welcome to tonight’s Rocky Mountain Cup match against Real Salt Lake! This is always one of the most exciting nights of the season at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, and we’re thrilled that you’ve joined us and the rest of this capacity crowd for what promises to be a great game. As always, this is a league match with much more on the line – last year, we were able to take back the Rocky Mountain Cup from RSL, and this season we have some ground to make up after they won the first match between us this year.
