Weekend Roundup 9/13 - 9/14

Colorado Rapids - My game review is here. With the win the Rapids move up to a tie with Chivas for 3rd in the West, the last playoff spot. They are 9 points behind leading Houston. Colorado is in a tie with Dallas for both the 5th best offense and the 7th best defense.

Queen of the South - Last week Queens hosted Morton in the Challenge Cup and lost 0-2. This week they travelled to Morton for a league match. The Doonhamers controlled most of the play, only to see Stevie Tosh ejected for a second yellow in the 65th minute. QoS continued to dominate the match but couldn't crack the Greenock defense and had to settle for returning to Dumfries with a 0-0 draw. After 6 matches Queens are 2nd in the division, 1 point behind leading Livingston.

Blackburn Rovers - Rovers hosted Arsenal and got beat up and down the pitch to the tune of a 4-0 drubbing. There's not much to be said about a match like that. After 4 matches Blackburn is 18th in the table with a -6 goal differential. They are 6 points behind league leading Chelsea.

CD Tenerife - CDT got their first road win since December with a 4-2 drubbing of Elche. The scoreline is a bit favorable to Tenerife, as after taking a 2-0 lead they allowed the home side to draw level before scoring 2 in the last 11 minutes of the game. After 3 games CDT are in 5th place, 1 point behind leaders Hercules.

Kildare County FC - Kildare had a hard time fielding a full lineup due to injury ands it showed, with a 4-1 loss on the road. 17 year old Orrin Farrell became the youngest starter in team history. They stayed with Dundalk for the first half, but their lack of depth caught up to them in the second when they were greatly outplayed. With the loss County remains at the bottom of the table, 5 points from avoiding a relegation playoff series with 10 games to play.
