Ross Schunk's goals in the 33rd and 37th minutes paved the way, as the Rapids Reserves cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Colorado School of Mines Wednesday afternoon at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
Rob Valentino put the Rapids Reserves up in the 5th minute when he headed an Ugo Ihemelu throw to the far post for the early 1-0 lead.
Schunk added to the Rapids' advantage first with a beautiful volley score from Facundo Diz and later with a blast to the upper right corner of the net from 25-yards out.
Playing the full match along with Schunk, Valentino and Diz were Greg Dalby, Ty Harden and Chris Sharpe. Ugo Ihemelu played the first half, as the Rapids were joined by several guest players including Richie Kotschau, Ross Burki and Babucarr Ceesay.
The Rapids train tomorrow morning before enjoying three days off over their bye weekend. Colorado’s next regular season game will be on Sunday, August 23 when they take on the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park at 4 pm MT.
