Here are the photos from last Tuesday’s Open Cup Final vs DCU. It was a disappointing loss and a very tough game but even more heartbreaking to watch the heartache the team went through. Here are the pics:
Regarding the most recent game vs FC Dallas: I thought that RSL responded very well and even after going down to 10 men 15 min into the match, it’s pretty impressive any time you are able to get a goal. Now RSL will get a needed break and hopefully it will allow the players and coaches to re-focus the team towards the playoffs.
RSL’s next game isn’t until October 19th when they take on the Portland Timbers at Jeld-Wen field. With a win in Portland, RSL would be able to secure its 6th consecutive playoff appearance, the second longest streak in MLS history.
However, the Claret and Cobalt may not have to wait that long to find out their playoff hopes. If the Colorado Rapids can pull off a win or a tie against the San Jose Earthquakes then RSL can clinch a spot in the 2013 MLS Cup Playoffs.
