Form and frustrations
After the defeat at Sporting KC on Saturday, Colorado Rapids forward Luis Solignac spoke of his form and frustations
On Colorado’s 2-0 loss to Sporting KC…
It seems like everything is against us right now. We are trying so hard - fighting, shooting, doing everything -  and it seems like the ball doesn’t want to go in. It’s one of the worst moments for the team right now. We are really frustrated.

Colorado Rapids slipped to a second successive road defeat when they went down 2-0 at Sporting KC on Saturday evening.

Pablo Mastroeni’s side started brightly but they trailed to a sharp low finish from Krisztian Nemeth in the 32nd minute.

They tried to work their way into the game but, on 62 minutes, Sam Cronin turned a cross from Benny Feilhaber into his own net. There was no way back after that.

This game represented the halfway point of the MLS season and Rapids now have a record of 2-6-9.

Colorado Rapids continue their road trip at Sporting Kansas City on Saturday evening - weather permitting!

The fixture at Sporting Park in mid-May was postponed because of lightning strikes and so, even though this game represents the midway point of the regular season, it is the first of three matches against Peter Vermes’ side.

As Shane O’Neill pointed after the defeat at Orlando, ties are no longer good enough for the Rapids.They need victories to catapult them back into contention in the Western Conference.

Thoughts on the game:

“As we’ve done all season, we put ourselves in good positions really early in the game but we just can’t finish. I think they were much brighter in the second half, more commitment in the second half from them. Disappointed in the way that we conducted ourselves in the second half.”

On performance in the second half:

Colorado Rapids look to return to MLS action with a bang.

After almost a fortnight out of the competition, Pablo Mastroeni’s side have nine points at stake inside eight days. They travel to Orlando City and Sporting KC next week but, before that, entertain FC Dallas on Friday night.

If you throw in a couple of US Open Cup ties sandwiching the whole week, then the Rapids are in the meat of a busy and important time.
