COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) - Kevin Doyle and Alan Gordon scored late goals six minutes apart and the Colorado Rapids took a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.
Colorado (4-8-1) came in with just 10 goals, tied for the worst in the MLS, and appeared headed for more disappointment. But Doyle tied the match with a sliding tap-in off a short cross from Marlon Hairston in the 80th minute for his third goal this season. Gordon got his first goal, heading in the ball at the far post off a pinpoint pass by Joshua Gatt in the 86th.
The Crew (7-8-1) took a 1-0 lead when Federico Higuain scored his sixth goal, scoring from the top of the box in the 61st after his on-target shot deflected off Micheal Azira into the net as goalie Zac MacMath dove the opposite direction. MacMath subbed for Tim Howard, who is away for World Cup qualifying.
