The Colorado Rapids won the first game of the first round of the Major League Soccer playoffs in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. They beat the Columbus Crew 1-0.
They will finish the series on November 6 in Columbus. It is a cumulative score format so if the Rapids win or tie in that match they will move on to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Denver needs to get behind the Rapids. They are playing quite well right now and have the chance to march deep into the playoffs. It could be a fun run.
