After a 1-1 draw with New England last Saturday and a 1-0 win over FC Tucson on Wednesday, the Rapids will play in the Desert Diamond Cup final this Saturday. The Rapids this preseason have a 2-1-2 record, (including the UNLV game).
I know results shouldnt really matter in the preseason and it’s more about putting together a game plan for the season and at the same time building a team that can execute that game plan with positive results during the season and into the playoffs. I will argue that when you are winless in the last 14 games of a season that results in the current preseason are just as important as they will be during the 2015 regular season.
The Desert Diamond Cup Final will be streamed online, this Saturday starting at 7pm.
