Player Ratings, Colorado Rapids vs Seattle Sounders, April 23, 2016

The weather was nice and the result was even nicer for the Colorado Rapids. The Rapids beat the Seattle Sounders 3-1 on Saturday to take the Rapids to second in the west and in the supporters shield race. Here is how the players did in this match. The weather was quite opposite this week versus the previous week. But the result was not different. The Colorado Rapids beat the Seattle Sounders 3–1 on a beautiful evening at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. With no Marco Pappa, Dominique Badji took his place in the lineup after scoring a goal and hitting the post last week. The only other change...

Sounders at Colorado Rapids: News, highlights, analysis

The Saturday 6 PM game between Western Conference foes is on Q13 FOX and Univision-Seattle. Colorado Rapids enter the match 4-2-1 +2 and are a perfect 3-0 at home this year. Seattle Sounders FC are 2-3-1 -1 and have yet to earn a road win. Former Sounder Marco Pappa is out injured. Both Clint Dempsey and Nelson Valdez are questionable in the game. Off to a surprising start, the Colorado Rapids have 13 points in their seven games. They are all about stingy defense, grit and raw Pablo-monium. Even with a win the Seattle Sounders will not be above the red line. The start out here was poor...

Sounders practice notes: Joevin Jones comes off the bench; Marco Pappa to miss Saturday’s Rapids match

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid was uncharacteristically blunt in his post-match press conference when explaining why he’d chosen to go with Dylan Remick at left back instead of usual starter Joevin Jones for the team’s 2-1 win over Philadelphia last Saturday. “I wanted more out of Joevin last week (against Houston) than I got,” Schmid said. Following […]

Community Ratings: Colorado Rapids at Sporting Kansas City, April 13, 2016

A midweek game? You bet! And you can still rate how your Colorado Rapids did at Children's Mercy Park. Get those ratings in. Wow. Such an emotional game midweek in Kansas City. The Colorado Rapids beat Sporting Kansas City 2-1 in an exciting match. It was a match where the Colorado Rapids only had 35 percent possession. The scoring started late in the first half when Marco Pappa stole the ball and fed a perfectly weighted ball to Luis Solignac who went near post to beat Tim Meila. In the second half, the Rapids parked the bus and held on until the 77' when they somehow let Dom Dwyer get...

RSL v. Colorado Tactical Preview: RSL face misfiring Rapids

After four matches, Colorado sits above the red line with a 2-1-1 record. Holding seven points, the Colorado Rapids are tied with the LA Galaxy, Vancouver, and San Jose. Despite this reasonable record, Colorado has had its flaws. If Real Salt Lake hopes to recapture the Rocky Mountain Cup, they will have to exploit the Rapid’s weaknesses while reducing their fortes. Where there is no struggle, there is no strength After finishing last in number of chances created and goals scored last year, the Rapids made headlines this offseason acquiring Marco Pappa from the Seattle Sounders and...

Authorities won't pursue charges in Marco Pappa-stabbing incident

It looks like the whole "Marco Pappa got stabbed and his Miss Washington girlfriend may have been involved" story is about to die a relatively quiet death. The King County Prosecutor's Office told the Denver Post that charges won't be brought against former Miss Washington Stormy Keffeler in connection to a stabbing incident that left the former Sounders midfielder with a 2- to 3-inch knife wound that required surgery. A spokesperson for the prosecutor's office explained that the case was "declined as legally insufficient," which likely means they were worried they couldn't meet the...
