First Action Of The Preseason

The Rapids played their first "real" scrimmage today against Seongnam FC of South Korea.  Here's the lineup for the first half (assuming we stuck with the 4-2-3-1 we've been using):

(t) - Trialist
(d) - Draftee

Pfeffer - Ekra(t) - Badji
Watts - Cronin
Castillo(d) - Burling - Sjobeg - Kamdem(d)

At halftime it was 1-1 with this goal from Ekra:

Full substitutions in the second half:

Solignac - Powers - Ownby(t)
Azira - Appiah(d)
Burch - Torre(d) - Keel(t) - Hairston

(I flip-flopped Appiah and Powers from the way the lineup was presented by the Rapids.  It seems more likely to how the played)

Game ended 4-2 Rapids with all 3 second half goals coming fro Kevin Doyle, the first two in the first 5 minutes of the half off of headers.  Here's the third:

The other news today was that the Rapids, as expected, made the Mekeil Williams signing official.
