Birds lose hard fought match to Colorado Rapids

First off, a reminder about Alumni weekend.  It is 30 Apr - 2 May.  Normally it is the first full weekend in May but those are the days this year. The Birds fought hard last night in their first Spring match against the Rapids.  The Rapids scored one goal in each half but the play was pretty even for long stretches.  Matt Underwood made several nice saves and Kevin Durr was classy as always in the center of the park.  We did have a few good chances but the rust was evident in the final third.  Welcome back Johnny Melcher.  He played very well having missed most of last season with injury.  The future looks bright for the upcoming season and the Alumni could be facing an arssss kicking in a few weeks.  Hope to see you for our 20th Alumni weekend.  Wow!!!  Even though every one of them is AWESOME, lets push this one up a notch.

See ya in a few weeks.
