1,000 Goal Club

The Rapids are just one goal away from reaching 1,000 goals in all-time regular season play. 

Familiar Face

Rapids midfielder Collen Warner will face his previous team tonight as he was with MNUFC during the 2017-18 season, making 42 appearances for the Loons. Warner will make his first start with the Rapids after making his debut on Friday against Sporting Kansas City. 

Recent Record Against Loons

This will be the seventh time these two teams have met. The Rapids have won three out of the last five matches against the Loons and last season, the teams split three points, each with a win at home. The Rapids' victory came off the head of Kei Kamara in a 1-0 win. Kamara’s goal was the 120th of his MLS career, making him the fifth player in MLS to cross that threshold. The Sierra Leone native is now only six goals away from tying MLS legend Jaime Moreno (133) for the fourth most goals in league history and seven goals away from tying for third all-time.
