The Rapids continued their unbeaten streak after ending in a draw with the Crew SC on Saturday night in Mapfre Stadium. Following the match, Colorado ends the week with a 7-2-3 record (6-0-0 at home), and the club can rest easy knowing it has conceded the least amount of goals of any team in MLS all season (nine).
A big part of that defensive front is Mekeil Williams, who was honored with a place on MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week for his contributions in the Rapids' 1-0 win over Sporting KC on Wednesday, and the club's 1-1 draw with Columbus on Saturday. The 6-foot-1 defender helped Colorado maintain its unbeaten streak with 11 tackles and five clearances in two games.
