Game Recap: Colorado Rapids 3, Houston Dynamo 1

The Colorado Rapids missed midfielder Younes Namli with knee issues, as well as forward Jonathan Lewis on the night, but that didn’t seem to deter a quick start by Colorado as the Burgundy Boys brought good pressure moving the ball into Houston’s final third early and often.

Forward Diego Rubio forced Houston Dynamo ‘keeper Marko Maric into an 11th-minute diving save. A great chance for the Rapids in the 14th minute came off the foot of Jack Price’s free kick as Cole Bassett went airborne for a driving header at the 6-yard-box but again, the save was made.
