SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs COLORADO RAPIDS SPORTING PARK, Kansas City, Kan. August 31, 2013 (WEEK 27, MLS Game #247) 7:30 p.m. CT (KSMO; Altitude) A pair of clubs in the thick of the playoff chase meet in an interconference clash when Sporting Kansas City play host to the Colorado Rapids on Saturday evening at Sporting Park. SKC returns home off a second consecutive loss, a 1-0 defeat at Chicago, and are now two points out of the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Rapids return to action after having extended their undefeated streak to a club-record nine games last time, a 2-0 win vs. Vancouver that left them in third place in the Western Conference and holding a playoff position.

Sporting have won seven of the 11 meetings since with four draws.  Kansas City hasn’t won in Colorado since 2004, a 3-1 win at Invesco Field at Mile High. All-time at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, the Rapids have won two of the six meetings, with four draws, including a 2-2 result last May 19 in the only meeting between the teams.  Coaches record: Peter Vermes v COL: P6 W1 L0 D5 … Oscar Pareja vs. KC: P1 W0 L0 D1 SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City went to a second consecutive loss, dropping a 1-0 decision to the Chicago Fire on Friday evening at Toyota Park. Sporting are now in a tie for second place in the Eastern Conference with 39 points from 26 matches. LAST MATCH  The game's lone goal came in the 13th minute. Mike Magee tipped a Jalil Anibaba cross across the goal to Hunter Jumper – making his second career start in MLS – and he scored into an open net by diving for a header with the ball just a few inches above the ground.  Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson was called upon to make four saves in keeping the club's first clean sheet since June 2.  Sporting manager Peter Vermes made four changes to the team that fell 1-0 to the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium. Peterson Joseph came into the midfield for Lawrence Olum, and C.J. Sapong, Teal Bunbury and Graham Zusi formed a new front line in place of Jacob Peterson, Claudio Bieler and Soony Saad.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-1-2-3): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Oriol Rosell (Lawrence Olum 82) - Peterson Joseph, Benny Feilhaber (Soony Saad 57) - C.J. Sapong, Teal Bunbury (Dom Dwyer 67), Graham Zusi. TEAM NEWS  Sporting have been shut out in back-to-back games for the second time this season (also: March 16-23), both in 1-0 defeats (to San Jose and Chicago), and have lost four of their last five games.  “We're not putting our chances away,” Sporting manager Peter Vermes said. “I don't know what else to say. We're creating them, even on set pieces. We had an unbelievable throw-in in the first half, and it goes right through their six-yard box. You've got to be hungry and you've got to be there to finish off the ball.”  Graham Zusi returned to the lineup following a three-match absence in league play, after suffering a thigh injury in the MLS All-Star Game on July 31.

Claudio Bieler also his ever-present run this season come to an end, not featuring for a league match for the first time in the Chicago defeat. “I feel that I have a role to play in this,” Bieler said. “As long as I'm on the field, I'm going to keep trying. I'm going to keep battling. I'm not going to give up. I'm a guy who likes to play the full game, the full 90 minutes, and lately I've been taken off because of the decisions of the coach, and I respect that. At the end of the day, it's a group effort, and we have to battle together to get through these tough times. Every team has a tough period in the season, so it's just all about how you bounce back.” C.J. Sapong made his first start for Sporting KC since June 22, after returning from a loan to USL PRO side Orlando City SC. Teal Bunbury also made his first start of the season after seven substitute appearances in all competitions, his first since suffering a torn ACL in his knee last summer. “I thought his movement was good,” Vermes said. “I thought he did a decent job of holding the ball up for us. He got a few good chances as well.” Kei Kamara missed a second consecutive match with a sprained ankle suffered in the New England win, after he scored a pair of goals. On Tuesday, Sporting continued their unbeaten record in the CONCACAF Champions League with a 2-0 victory against CD Olimpia of Honduras. Soony Saad scored on either side of halftime for SKC, which now has four points from two matches to sit atop Group 2. “It's huge to come here – not an easy trip by any means with the travel and everything else – and put in an unbelievable tactical performance. I thought we were flawless in that regard. And then another clean sheet puts in a good position to now try to bring both these teams home,” said Vermes. “We're in a very good place.” Here’s the Sporting team: Eric Kronberg; Seth Sinovic, Ike Opara, Aurelien Collin, Mechack Jerome; Oriol Rosell, Benny Feilhaber (Peterson Joseph 67), Paulo Nagamura (C.J. Sapong 78) ; Soony Saad, Claudio Bieler (Dom Dwyer 48), Graham Zusi

COLORADO RAPIDS The Colorado Rapids return to action after extending their undefeated streak to a club-record nine games last time out, defeating Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2-0 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The Rapids are in a tie for third place in the Western Conference with 39 points from 26 matches. LAST MATCH  The Rapids took the lead in the 36th minute. On his MLS debut, Vicente Sanchez delivered a perfect cross from the right wing Deshorn Brown powered in to finish with a thundering header just in front of goal at the far left post.  The Rapids put the game away in the 80th minute when substitute Nick LaBrocca’s through ball found Edson Buddle open on the right side of the box, and his ensuing shot deflected off 'Caps defender Johnny Leveron and past goalkeeper David Ousted to ensure the three points.  Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin collected three highlight-reel saves to preserve the clean sheet.  Rapids head coach Oscar Pareja made four changes to the team that came back for a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA at StubHub Center. Marvell Wynne came into the back four for German Mera, and Hendry Thomas, Vicente Sanchez and Gabriel Torres all came into the team in place of Nick LaBrocca, Jaime Castrillon and Tony Cascio.  COLORADO RAPIDS (4-2-3-1): Clint Irwin - Marvell Wynne, Shane O'Neill, Drew Moor, Christopher Klute Nathan Sturgis, Hendry Thomas - Vicente Sanchez (Martin Rivero 63), Dillon Powers (Nick LaBrocca 75), Deshorn Brown - Gabriel Torres (Edson Buddle 78). TEAM NEWS  The Rapids extended their undefeated streak to nine games in the 2-0 win vs. Vancouver. It matches the longest undefeated streak in club history, equaling the mark set April 30-June 11, 2011.  Newly-signed Designated Player Vicente Sánchez recorded his first MLS assist vs. Vancouver, making his first league start after coming off the substitutes’ bench the week before.  “I was concerned naturally today with how that partnership could develop,” Rapids coach Oscar Pareja said. “But I think that understanding showed in periods of the game, which is good. It cannot be anything but better surely in the upcoming days.”  Said Sanchez: “We’re going to have more time to work together as a team. There’s two weeks without a game, and that’s good. They’re two weeks to work more, work with my teammates, and I’m happy.”  Gabriel Torres made his MLS debut, starting up top and playing 78 minutes. "I think (Torres) linked well, and not just with Vicente but with the other players," Pareja said. "With Dillon [Powers], even with Deshorn [Brown]. I thought the connection with Deshorn was really good and it’s encouraging. We’re very optimistic with that situation. To see two guys who came in here today and they showed that the game is about good soccer players. Sometimes the language or the timing is not a big factor, it’s about having good players on the field.”  Marvell Wynne returned to the Rapids lineup after a one-match absence and made his 200th league appearance, the 84th player in MLS history to reach that milestone.

“I thought Marvell had one of his best games since I’ve been here and I want to highlight that,” Pareja said. “Marvell came up huge for us. He made a great contribution offensively and defensively … and the combination with him and Vicente (Sanchez) looked good. It looked natural to me.” Said Wynne: “We had a little bit of a different lineup . I had Vicente in front of me and he made things a lot easier for me. I feel I can do my job correctly offensive if I just give him the ball. And, with him always being able to turn and get in good positions, I can make runs off him.” Deshorn Brown scored his seventh goal of the season, most among MLS rookies, his second in the last three games and fifth since June 19. Hendry Thomas also returned to the center of midfield following a two-match suspension, again playing the full 90 minutes. “He’s having some issue with his hamstring, but with Hendry you have to get a couple of cops to get him off the field,” Pareja said. ‘It’s difficult because that’s his personality, but it seems like he did well with it. He’s not hurt, but (hamstring) was tight, and I was glad to keep him in the field at that point.”

COLORADO RAPIDS GAME NOTES David Lindholm, Director of Media Relations - (720) 320-9302, dlindholm@dsgpark.com Richard Fleming, Director of Broadcasting / Play by Play - (720) 519-3672, rfleming@dsgpark.com Rachel Sweeney, Media Relations Coordinator - (303) 512-3014, rsweeney@dsgpark.com

MLS Regular Season Date: Saturday, August 31, 2013 7:30 p.m. CT (6:30 MT) Location: Sporting Park Kansas City, Kan. Television: Altitude Radio: Mile High Sports Radio 93.7FM-1510AM, 1150AM (Spanish)

Rapids @ Sporting KC After a bye weekend, the Rapids return to action this Saturday, August 31 at Sporting Kansas City. The Rapids are currently tied (with Portland) for third in the Western Conference with a 10-7-9 record and 36 points. Sporting KC are tied for second in the East with an 11-9-6 record and 39 points. Against Sporting KC, the Rapids hold a 17-20-13 all-time record. Colorado has not defeated Kansas City since March 28, 2009 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (a 2-1 victory). Last season, the Rapids tied KC 2-2 on May 19 in Colorado for their only meeting of the season, and also just the third time ever that the Rapids came back to earn a point after falling behind by two goals. In fact, the last four meetings between the two teams have ended in ties. Sporting have lost their last two regular season games, at Chicago and San Jose both by a score of 1-0. KC also did not get to take advantage of the bye week, as they earned a 2-0 victory over Olimpia in CONCACAF Champions League action on Tuesday. Rapids riding unbeaten run The Colorado Rapids will be looking to extend a nine-game unbeaten streak (5-0-4), tied for the longest such run in club history which was first set in 2011 (2-0-7). If the Rapids win or tie at Kansas City, it will be the longest string of unbeaten games in club history. Kansas City Connections Sporting KC forward Jacob Peterson began his MLS career with the Rapids in 2006. He played in 92 games, scoring eight goals and adding five assists for Colorado, through the 2009 season before being traded to Toronto FC at the start of the 2010 season. Rapids 2, Vancouver 0 The Colorado Rapids extended their unbeaten run to nine games on August 17 with a 2-0 victory over Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The Rapids took the lead in the 35th minute when Vicente Sánchez served in a cross from the right flank that found the head of Deshorn Brown on the far post. The visitors had several chances throughout the match, but Irwin came up big each time to keep Vancouver scoreless. In the 79th minute, Nick LaBrocca found Edson Buddle whose shot deflected off a Whitecaps defender and into the net to give the Rapids a 2-0 victory at home. Torres called up to Panamanian National Team Rapids forward and first ever Designated Player Gabriel Torres has been called up by his home country Panama to participate in the team’s upcoming World Cup Qualifiers next month. He will leave the team after playing in Kansas City this weekend to take on Jamaica in Panama on September 6 and then travel to Honduras to face them on September 10. Torres will miss Colorado’s Sept. 7 match at the LA Galaxy, and return in time for the Rapids’ home game on Sept. 14 against FC Dallas.

COLORADO RAPIDS Overall: 10-7-9 36 pts, T-3rd in West Home: 7-3-4 Away: 3-4-5 GF: 33 GA: 27 GD: 6

SPORTING KC Overall: 11-9-6 39 pts, T-2nd in East Home: 6-4-3 Away: 5-5-3 GF: 36 GA: 26 GD: 10

A native of Panama City, Torres scored five goals in the recent CONCACAF Gold Cup, tied with Landon Donovan and Chris Wondolowski of the United States for the most in the tournament. He has a total of seven goals for Panama in his 40 appearances representing his country. Powers and Brown leading ROY candidates Rapids rookies Dillon Powers and Deshorn Brown are each making waves and are among the top Rookie of the Year candidates in MLS. Brown scored his seventh goal of the season in the 2-0 victory over Vancouver on August 17, and leads MLS rookies in that category. Powers has four goals and five assists this year, and led the Rapids’ 2 -0 victory over the Galaxy on July 27 with a goal and an assist. He also sparked the comeback win in Montreal on June 29 as well as the 2-1 home victory over New England on July 17. The Rapids drafted both players in the first round of the 2013 MLS SuperDraft, taking Brown with the 6th overall pick and Powers at 11th overall. Irwin seeking shutout record Rapids goalkeeper Clint Irwin has earned nine clean sheets this season, just one shy of the club’s single season record of 10 shutouts previously set by Joe Cannon in 2004. Irwin, a strong candidate for MLS Newcomer of the Year, was signed by the Rapids in February 2013 having previously played in the USL Pro Division and at Elon University. He made his MLS debut in the third Rapids game of the season after starting goalkeeper Matt Pickens was sidelined with a fractured arm. Reserves fall 1-0 to Chivas USA on Tuesday The Rapids Reserves fell by a 1-0 score to the Chivas USA Reserves on Tuesday morning on Dick’s Sporting Goods Park Field 22, with Chivas USA’s Aaron Ponce scoring the only goal of the match in the 50th minute. The result brings the Rapids Reserves to 4-6-1 (W-L-T) and their next match is on September 8 at the LA Galaxy Reserves. Calderón, Harris, and Mullan return in Reserve match One of the bright sides of Tuesday’s 1-0 Reserve loss was the return of Diego Calderón, Atiba Harris and Brian Mullan from injuries. Calderón, who had been out with a knee injury since March 23, started the match for Colorado and played the first 45 minutes, while Harris came back from a quad strain to play the final 20 minutes. Brian Mullan played the full 90 minutes at right back after missing time due to knee and calf injuries. Marvell Wynne plays 200th game Rapids defender Marvell Wynne played his 200th regular season game on August 17, playing the full 90 minutes in the 2-0 home victory against Vancouver. The 27-year-old former New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC player is in his fourth season with the Rapids, and has played in 20 games this season. Nathan Sturgis approaching 100th MLS game Rapids midfielder Nathan Sturgis has played in 99 MLS regular season games, and if he continues to play for the Rapids he is set to make his 100th all-time appearance against Sporting KC on Saturday. Additionally, with his start against Vancouver Whitecaps, he has now


started more matches in a single season (17 starts) than any other season in his career. Sturgis was selected 12th overall by the LA Galaxy in the 2006 MLS SuperDraft and was acquired by the Rapids on December 23, 2013 from the Houston Dynamo in exchange for Omar Cummings. He’s scored four goals for the Rapids this season, after having only scored once in his career before coming to Colorado. Buddle nearing milestone On August 17, Edson Buddle scored his third goal for the Rapids and his 96th career MLS goal. He is currently 8th on the all-time scorers list, and needs just five more goals to become the 8th player in MLS history to reach the centennial mark. With Buddle on the field, the Rapids are 10-2-5 this season. Torres and Sanchez make home debuts Colorado’s newest additions Gabriel Torres and Vicente Sánchez each made their home debuts in the August 17 match against Vancouver Whitecaps FC. Sánchez, who had made his MLS debut as a second half sub the week before at Chivas USA, assisted his first goal in MLS by serving the ball that Deshorn Brown headed in to take the lead against Vancouver. For Torres, Colorado’s first ever Designated Player, the night was his first official MLS appearance, after he scored a goal in the Reserve league victory over Chivas USA the week before. Davy Armstrong undergoes successful ACL surgery Rapids Homegrown Player Davy Armstrong underwent successful ACL repair surgery on Tuesday, which was performed by Rapids Team Doctor Wayne Gersoff M.D. Armstrong, a defender from Aurora, suffered the right knee injury earlier this month while on loan with Phoenix FC of the USL Pro Division, and will likely miss approximately six months for recovery. Kory Kindle to undergo sports hernia surgery Defender and Supplemental Draft pick Kory Kindle will have sports hernia repair surgery in the coming days. Kindle had been out for the

last month rehabbing a sprained left ankle when the abdominal injury was discovered. He is expected to miss approximately three months for recovery. The Corner 7-Eleven The Rapids have partnered with 7-Eleven to create The Corner 7Eleven in sections 112 and 113. Tickets for the section cost just $15, one of the most affordable ticket options available, and fans can only purchase them at any one of the 330 7-Eleven retail locations in Colorado.
