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.

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.

Colorado Rapids midfielder Nick LaBrocca will sit out this Friday's visit to Real Salt Lake, after being handed a one-game ban by the MLS Disciplinary Committee.

The 29-year-old is to serve a suspension as a result of his 91st minute challenge on Portland Timbers' Ben Zemanski - a former teammate at Chivas USA - in last Saturday's 2-2 tie at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

After tying Portland to end a seven game losing streak, the team now turns their attention to Real Salt Lake this Friday, and Head Coach Pablo Mastroeni is relishing the opportunity of going to Utah in search of three points (NBCSN, kick-off 8 p.m MT).

Making the playoffs at this point for the Rapids would be a tall task, but one that Mastroeni is looking forward to.

“I’m excited about the preparation, excited about going to a difficult place, and really laying it all on the line for a chance at the playoffs.”
