Rapids Out of Postseason
The Colorado Rapids will not be going to the postseason for the third straight year after New England beat Columbus today. Remarkably, the Rapids were still in with a shout at getting a playoff spot after their 3-0 beating by Real Salt Lake yesterday. Results elsewhere meant that they could still get into the postseason, apparently if Columbus beat New England. That wasn't to be as New England won the final game of the regular season 1-0 with a Jeff Larentowicz goal in the 79th minute. In truth, the Rapids would have been very lucky to have crept in by the back door after only getting four points from their last seven games. Time for some analysis another day.
