The GOOD – The return of Shkelzen Gashi to the starting 11 after missing the previous game with an illness. Doyle rules!…..again, putting a header into the back of the net from a Gashi corner. Much better second half by the Rapids than the first half. The Rapids are now unbeaten in their last 7, winning 5 of those 7, also scoring 12 goals in those 7 games and relnquishing just 6 goals. Of the 3 games this last week, the Rapids grabbed 7 of a total 9 pts (2 wins, 1 draw). Still on top of the Western Conference and leading the Supporters Shield race.
The BAD – The poor defense leading up to Crew SC’s goal in the 23rd minute. Watching the last 10 minutes of the game.
The UGLY – Officiating, 15 fouls Colorado, 7 for Columbus.
Next up for the Rapids, away at Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday May 21st.
