NEW YORK — Jonathan Lewis scored twice and the Colorado Rapids beat the New York Red Bulls 2-0 on Saturday night.
It was a happy night for new Colorado head coach Robin Fraser, who scored a win in his debut as the club's leader.
Lewis opened the scoring for the Rapids (8-14-6) in the 14th minute. He took it from 30 yards out on the left wing and slotted it past goalkeeper Luis Robles into the right corner.
Robles made a pair of diving saves after the 70th minute to keep it a one-goal game until Lewis buried a right-footed blast from the top of the penalty area in the 87th minute.
Colorado goalkeeper Tim Howard started his MLS career for the then-MetroStars in 1998 and Saturday night was his final visit to his former club. He made three saves to record the 211th shutout of his 21-year professional career.
