Rapids bombarded by Arsenal Reserves

The Rapids lost today to the Arsenal Reserves, 2-1. However these "reserves" included such notable first team members as Gilberto, Robin Van Persie, and Theo Wolcott. With the Rapids playing a second game in as many days most of the second team got the start. Our lineup was:

Kimura - Zambrano - Harvey - Ward
Peterson - LaBrocca - O'Brien - Colaluca
H. Gomez - Kirovski

Only Hughes played the full 90, H. Gomez came off after getting his first 23 minutes of playing time this preseason, everyone else was subbed at half. The Rapids gave up a goal early, in both halves, but managed to get one on the board late. Colin Clark put it away with an assist from our trialist Tom McManus.

The Rapids return to Denver on Sunday, with one more trip to Jackson, Mississippi planned before the start of the season.
