Your Colorado Rapids play their last regular season game of 2009 at Rio Tinto Stadium this Saturday night vs. their archrivals Real Salt Lake. Kickoff is set for 7pm MT on Fox Soccer Channel.
Read the entire Game Notes Guide assembled by the Rapids Media Relations dept. for Saturday’s game online by clicking here.
Colorado are 1-0-1 vs. Real so far in 2009, with a 2-0 win on May 2 and a 1-1 draw on June 6. The Rapids players who have scored so far this season against Real are Kosuke Kimura, Nick LaBrocca and Omar Cummings.
The match will make or break the Rapids' playoff dreams. The Rapids are in for sure with a victory; a loss or tie would mean Colorado have to await other results from the weekend to learn their postseason fate.
Saturday's match will also serve as the deciding game for ownership of The Rocky Mountain Cup, the annual tournament between the 2 sides for domination of the region. The Rapids will claim the Cup outright with a win, draw, or loss by 1 goal.
The Rapids look forward to seeing all fans at the official away-game viewing party at The British Bulldog Saturday night for the match.............as always, arrive early and wear burgundy.
