There was enough time for a Rapids rally, as Jack McBean latched onto a rebound from a Shkelzen Gashi save and scored his first goal for the club in the 85th minute. But the home side could not find a dramatic equalizer to split the points.

- THE BIG PICTURE: The Red Bulls extend their winning streak to three games, and a road win at altitude is always a good accomplishment. The Rapids, meanwhile, are now on a four-game losing streak, tied for worst in MLS at the moment.
- MOMENT OF THE MATCH: In the end, Etienne's goal was the difference, and the replays show the potential offside call was about as close as it gets.

- MAN OF THE MATCH: It was a typical Red Bulls victory, which is to say it was a thorough team effort, but Luis Robles made five saves to maintain the lead for his team, and his teammates came through on the other end to seal three points.
