With the Los Angeles Galaxy in town, most casual observers wouldn’t have expected the host Colorado Rapids to come away with a victory.
Instead, the hosts comfortably ran out as winners, thanks to Rapids rookie Dillon Powers. Powers scored one goal and assisted on another in the Rapids 2-0 win vs. the Galaxy, a performance that earned him SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors. It’s the fifth time this season that Powers has received this honor.
Powers beat out Rapids teammate Shane O’Neill, the Montreal Impact’s Blake Smith, and Columbus Crew midfielder Will Trapp.
What did you think of Powers’ performance? Which MLS Rookie stood out to you in Week 22?
