DENVER — The Colorado Rapids 2 lost its match against North Texas SC 3-1 at the University of Denver (DU) Soccer Stadium on Saturday evening.
Rapids 2 forward Darren Yapi scored the lone Rapids goal of the night. Yapi now leads the club with three goals scored this season.
Daouda Amadou recorded his first start for Rapids 2 on Saturday.
"You know, it was a tough one because obviously this is one of our best performances from previous matches," said Yapi. "It was a tough game and I feel like we created good chances in the second half, and we could have pushed for a draw or even a win in the second half."
"We had a good start picking off possession, Yapi taking it in for a goal, a well-taken goal," said Rapids 2 head coach Erik Bushey. "As has been the case in recent weeks, we make a mistake and get punished. In a weird way, I am grateful for that and that is what the league is meant to bring. It is meant to bring a quality and that is what we need to improve and to get better."
The Colorado Rapids 2 (1-7-1) are back home at DU on Wednesday, June 8, when they face St. Louis CITY2 at 7 p.m. To purchase tickets for the next Rapids 2 match, click here.
