Colorado Rapids Look Promising as They Get First Win of The season

Henry Caldwell, Writer

The Colorado Rapids won their first game of the season in a strong showing against the Vancouver Whitecaps. The final score was 1-0. Diego Rubio scored in the 26 minute that ended up being the winner. The Chilean stepped up to take a free kick from about 30 yards out to serve up a shot in the upper 90 that kissed the crossbar and found the back of the net. His shot was an absolute rocket and the keeper had no chance. He has proved to be an important piece to the Rapids so far as he moved here last season.

Hopefully, this win can get the rapids back on track as they only have 4 points through 3 games. The rapids have struggled with keeping their leads as last game they were up 1-0 and ended up losing 3-1 to newly promoted side Austin FC. The Rapids also held their own on the defensive side of things which has troubled them in recent seasons. Overall the Rapids look promising and hopefully they can continue this throughout the season.
