News & Notes

Some tidbits to get us through this bye weekend:
  • Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of the last regular-season league game the Rapids won when the opposition scored first. While its been a little over a year since we came from behind to win its been 4 years since we won after giving up the first goal. In that time we have won 32 games, 23 of them by shutting out the opposition. Obviously we don't play well when we let the opponent score.
  • The Wednesday July 21st home game against Philadelphia has been rescheduled for Wednesday Sept. 29th at 7pm. This was done to allow the Union to host Manchester United on July 21st. Previously our game in Chicago on May 22nd was rescheduled for June 9th so that Chicacgo could play the championship of their Sister Cities Cup which includes Paris Saint-Germain, Red Star Belgrade, and Legia Warsaw. When does one of our games get rescheduled so we can play a big European team?
  • Backup goalkeeper Steward Ceus, on-loan to the USL-2 Charlotte Eagles, broke his wrist this week. That's a picture from his Twitter feed above. He said he got good news today, so hopefully he won't be out long.
