(D) = Unsigned draftee
Miller - Ford - Sjoberg - Williams
Azira - Cronin
Callahan(D) - Powers - Badji
This lineup gave up a goal 19 minutes in from a corner that managed to fall uncleared in the box.
After 30 minutes Callahan was subbed out for former Rapid Tony Cascio. He's currently signed with Phoenix Rising FC (formerly Arizona United SC) of the USL but has been recovering from injury and this was his first real game minutes in 6 months. Officially he was listed as a guest player, not a trialist, but everyone who gets game minutes for a team is on trial, officially or otherwise. If he impresses the Rapids would probably be able to buy him out of his USL contract.
He got off to a good start with back-to-back assists just as the stroke of halftime, first to Calvert, then to Badji. After the break the same 11 took the field and Calvert made it a brace with a goal in the 60th minute. Right after all 10 field players were subbed for the last 30 minutes:
Castillo - Watts - Burling - Burch
Hamilton(D) - Nana
Hairston - Perez - Gashi
This was Gashi's first action of the preseason, so his recovery from the Achilles issue must be going well. Not a whole lot of action after the subs and the game finished 3-1.
Next up is NYCFC on Wednesday night at 5pm MT.
