Game Notes

  • Rapids defender Keegan Rosenberry was named to the MLS Team of the Week after scoring the game-winning goal in the Rapids’ 2-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night. The fullback hit a powerful, right-footed strike from outside the box to beat J.T. Marcinkowski and ensure the Rapids kept their playoff hopes alive heading into their final three games of the regular season.
  • With his first-half goal against the Earthquakes on Wednesday night, forward Diego Rubio recorded his 21st goal contribution (14 goals, 7assists) of the year, tying Mark Chung (21; 2002) and John Spencer (21 in 2001) for the most goal contributions in a single season in club history. The goal marked the Chilean’s team-leading 14th goal of the season; only Conor Casey (16 in 2009) has scored more in a single regular season in Rapids history. Rubio has now contributed to a goal in each of his last eight home matches (six goals, two assists).
  •  Overall, Robin Fraser’s side enter Saturday’s game against the LA Galaxy undefeated in their last three matches.
  • GK William Yarbrough is one shutout away from recording his 26th with the Rapids, which would tie him with Clint Irwin for second-most in club history.
  • F Diego Rubio is one game-winning goal away from surpassing Paul Bravo (12) for most in club history and is five appearances away from recording his 100th appearance as a member of the Rapids
