The Scouting Report
On April 6—as if driven by more than just instinct—Rapids’ goalie Clint Irwin dove to his left to deny Alvaro Saborio on a penalty kick. The stop was nominated for Save of the Week and it helped the Rapids earn their first win of the season. Early on in the 2013 campaign, Irwin has anchored a Rapids roster loaded with young stars who have just recently emerged from clouds of interstellar gas. That includes Dillon Powers and Deshorn Brown, two players near the top of the MLS Rookie Rankings.<p>
In October 1995, the Colorado Rapids were introduced as one of Major League Soccer’s 10 charter teams. As one of the league's longest tenured members, the organization has brought a number of landmark moments to Denver, highlighted by a MLS Cup victory in 2010. Three years before their championship campaign, the Rapids became the centerpiece of Dick’s Sporting Goods Park—a sprawling complex that features a total of 24 fully lit sports fields. During Rapids matches, fans get swept up in the park’s lively atmosphere driven by Centennial 38, the team's official supporters group. In their designated “Supporter’s Terrace”, C38 members lead raucous cheers and wave massive flags to inspire their side.
