Colorado Rapids 4-0 Chivas USA: Late barrage helps Colorado run away with win

Doug Pensinger

Colorado was already in front heading into the dying moments, but caught fire late to give the match an ugly scoreline.

Chivas USA collapsed late on as the Colorado Rapids poured in three goals in the final 10 minutes in a 4-0 win.

After 50 scoreless minutes Tony Cascio gave the Rapids a lead with the first goal of the night. From Colorado's first corner of the match Cascio took the ball down into space and sliced a left-footed shot across goal and into the side netting.

Despite the goal, the match seemed destined to be a low-scoring affair until the 82nd minute when Kamani Hill slotted home on the break to make it 2-0 and open the floodgates.

Jeff Larentowicz slotted home a penalty in the 84th minute after Ante Jazic pulled him down in the box, and Hill rounded out the night with his second at the death.
