Weekend Roundup 6/13 - 6/14

Colorado Rapids - The Rapids had the week off before their 3 games in 7 days next week.

CD Tenerife - PROMOTION! LA LIGA!!! CDT went into Girona needing just a point or a Hercules draw or loss to clinch promotion. Hercules dominated their game, winning 4-1, so it was no Tenerife to get a result, and with a 40th minute goal from Kome they did, holding out for a 1-0 victory and starting the party. I'm pretty sure Santa Cruz de Tenerife is still rocking. Next year it will be visited by the likes of Kaka, Christiano Ronaldo, and Thierry Henry, and not just because they're coming to the tropics for vacation. With one game to play CDT leads Xerez by 2 in the goal differential tiebreaker and Real Zaragoza by a point. Xerez travels to 17th placed Celta Vigo and Zaragoza travels to 5th placed Rayo Vallencano white Tenerife hosts 8th placed Castellon. As long as the team isn't hung over from this week's parties they should be able to handle Castellon, which means Xerez will have to win by 3 goals more than CDT (Since CDT wins the third tiebreaker, goals scored, by 6) in order to take the title from them. We'll know by noon MDT on Sunday!

Kildare County - County lost by one goal at home again to Athlone Town. The "good" news is that this was a FAI Cup game, so it didn't hurt their league standing. Of course they're out of the Cup now. Its now a 14 game losing streak though where they've been outscored 46-6.
