In what comes as a surprise to most everyone this morning, Tim Hinchey just granted the wishes of many of the Rapids faithful. Hinchey will be leaving the Rapids front office to take over as President & CEO of USA Swimming as reported in a press release by USA Swimming.
Switchbacks FC fail to advance in last night’s match against OKC Energy FC in the 3rd round of the US Open Cup, missing out on a 3rd straight meeting with the Rapids this season. The Rapids will face Energy FC for the first time. Game according to ussoccer.com is scheduled for June 13th. 3rd round US Open Cup results and 4th round schedule here.
No Bobby Burling for this weekend’s match again the Crew SC, thanks to the Disciplinary Committee. No Howard due to US National team duties. No Watts possibly with a calf injury. Mekeil Williams is possibly also out as he is training with Trinidad & Tobago this week for the upcoming WCQ against the US next Thursday. So the back four for Saturday looks like it could be Hairston, Sjoberg, Ford and Miller to start.
Congrats to Conor Casey who will join the Rapids Gallery of Honor on Saturday.
