On result…

It’s an elation for this group of guys. All season we’ve created a lot of great opportunities, and today we were fortunate enough to finish two. That’s what defines games and changes mentalities. I’m elated for those guys. We really pulled it together against an exceptional Vancouver team. The guys left everything on the field, and for that we were rewarded with a great result.

The Rapids are 12-3-4 all-time on the 4th of July - all at home - and eight times the winning goal has been scored after the 69th minute. However, since moving over to Dick's Sporting Goods Park in 2007, the team has only won two of eight matches (2-2-4) on Independence Day (though, in 2011, the game was played on July 3 instead of the 4th).

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.
