Match final – Rapids 2, Timbers 0

Not the perfect weather for a home opener, 30 degrees at the start of the match but for anyone who was in attendance knows it was much colder than that. Luckily this time Mother Nature held off on the heavy snow. Today marks the 1 year anniversary of sorts of the Snow Classico when the US Men’s National team defeated Costa Rica at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in much worse conditions than today, but the potential was there certainly for the weather to get worse. Besides this is Colorado, when it comes to weather, anything is possible.

By now, you all probably know how the Rapids goals came about in this afternoon’s match, both on penalty kicks, so I wont go into great details of the game. Hey a win is a win and it was also Pablo’s first win as the new head coach of the Rapids, so a huge congrats to him!

Here are a few photos from today
