No sooner had the Colorado Rapids exited the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night, then attention began turning to the visit of Vancouver Whitecaps this Saturday to Dick's Sporting Goods Park (TICKETS) and the resumption of MLS.

Bizarre is one word used to describe Tuesday's U.S. Open Cup match involving the Colorado Rapids and Atlanta Silverbacks. There were a total of four red cards issued, while both coaches were sent off as the Rapids fell to the Silverbacks 2-1. 

Of course, that doesn't even touch upon the nearly hour-long weather delay in the first half of the match. The Colorado sky was as temperamental as the game being played underneath it.

Here are a few spectacular images captured by Rapids fans and staffers.

Not only did the Rapids romp into round five of the U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night, but they also welcomed back the talismanic talent that is Vicente Sánchez, who has missed the best part of six weeks due to a sprained knee.

He played the final 26 minutes of Colorado’s 5-2 victory over Orlando City SC. The forward, who has five goals in MLS this season, had an assist on the Rapids’ final goal of the night. For Sánchez, the match was an opportunity to work back to full health, all while the team moved closer to winning a trophy.

Deshorn Brown’s first career hat-trick helped the Colorado Rapids advance to the fifth round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night, trouncing soon-to-be MLS side Orlando City 5-2 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

An early goal had the Rapids off on the wrong foot, but it would be all Colorado – and Brown, in particular – from there, with the Jamaican international terrifically taking all three goals and upping his season total (in all competitions) to eight.
