What a win, Saturday night for the Rapids and their faithful.
The GOOD – Offensively the Rapids outshot the Galaxy 14-9, with 10 of those shots coming from open play and 8 of those were on target. Defensively the Rapids held LA to one shot on target for more than two-thirds of the game. Frustrated and kept Robbie Keene in check for most of the night. The Rapids didnt play for the point, like I thought they would late in the game, that is called progress, though it’s still very early in the season. MacMath gets a clean sheet. Marco Pappa off the bench with a beautiful shot in stoppage time to kill the Galaxy hopes.
The BAD – Sloppy for a good part of the game by both sides. The Rapids didnt score more than 1 goal, they created plenty of chances, but Rowe in goal for the Galaxy was superb until the 95th minute.
The UGLY – The look on Bruce Arena’s face after the loss.
The Rapids are 1-1-0, with 3 points after 2 games.
