WINDSOR, Colo. - Colorado Rapids 2 suffered a 2-1 loss against Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC on Sunday afternoon at Future Legends Sports Complex.

Rapids’ first-team forward Stewart-Baynes was first to kick off the scoring for the afternoon, finding a through ball from Lewis for Rapids 2’s opening goal.

Northern Colorado found their best opportunity of the first half in the 41st minute when Irvin Parra stepped up to the spot for a penalty kick after being fouled in the box. Homegrown goalkeeper Adam Beaudry came up big with a save to keep Rapids 2 up by one heading into the second half.
