Here’s a recap of the 2nd leg of the Rocky Mountain Cup.
The GOOD – 5-0 at home! Rapids are alone at the top of the table with 20 pts! Created plenty of chances throughout the entire game, outshooting RSL 17-13. Rapids were aggressive on offense. Defense negated any chance of an RSL offensive threat in the first half. MacMath was huge in goal tonight, you dont get to say that often.
The BAD – Joao Plata, a difference maker whenever he enters any game for RSL. Rapids defense looked sloppy and almost Chelsea-like (parking the bus) deep in their half of the field in the second half at times.
The UGLY – The weather. 3rd straight match of lousy weather at home doesn’t bring out the fair weather fans to DSGP.
The Rapids sit all alone on top of the Western Conference and in the race for the Supporters’ Shield race with 20 pts. Record 6-2-2.
No one saw this coming, no one. But there’s still a long way to go in the season.
