The Colorado Rapids and New England Revolution may have each lost their respective matches last weekend, but not for some outstanding individual performances, as determined with the MLS Castrol Index.
Nathan Sturgis (No. 2), Brian Mullan (No. 7), Drew Moor (No. 10), and Marvell Wynne (No. 14) all rated highly in a losing cause for the Rapids, while Scott Caldwell (No. 11), Dimitry Imbongo (No. 15), and Juan Agudelo (No. 19) made the grade for the Revs following a wild 4-3 loss against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
It's not the first time Rapids players have shown well in the League indicator. Two weeks ago, Atiba Harris became the second Rapids player to take the top spot for having the best performance for Week 14. Through 16 weeks, midfielder Sturgis ranks 4th in the overall Index in MLS, with Drew Moor coming in at #23 and Clint Irwin at #29.
