Rapids Defeat Republic

Last night Colorado took on the USL Sacramento Republic out in California.  The starting XI:

(t) - trialist
(d) - draftee

Pfeffer - Ownby(t) - Solignac
Watts - Powers
Williams - Sjoberg - Keel(t) - Castillo(d)

After a scoreless half the Rapids did almost a full lineup change for the 2nd half:

Serna - Azira - Badji
Cronin - Appiah(d)
Burch - Cochran(t) - Burling - Hairston

Then at the 71st minute Froschauer(d) came on for MacMath and in the 77th Ekra(t) came on for Serna.  Finally right at the end of the game Cochran hit a diving header for the winner.

The Rapids next action will be in the Desert Diamond Cup at 5:30 MT on Wednesday.  All DDC games are streamed online.  Their opponent Wednesday evening will be the Swope Park Rangers, Sporting KC's new USL team.

Froschauer: 109
Appiah: 90
Kamdem: 90
Torre: 45

Keel: 135
Ownby: 135
