Kellyn Acosta needs to continue his strong performance. 

Acosta has scored a goal in each of his first two games with the Colorado Rapids and has 8 shots.  The Rapids needed offense badly and now it seems they have found it in Acosta.  Momentum needs to continue as the season winds down and this match should be a good opportunity for Acosta to build on that.

Acosta’s quick start with the Colorado Rapids also means opportunities for other players as many Earthquake eyes should be watching what Acosta is doing on the pitch at all times.  Acosta staying hot should be good for everyone on the Rapids team.
