Rossi scores twice in first half, LAFC beats Rapids 2-1

Colorado's three-match winning streak was snapped in Saturday night's defeat on the road.

LOS ANGELES — Diego Rossi scored a pair of first-half goals as Los Angeles Football Club snapped a two-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids Saturday night.

Michael Barrios scored the Rapids, who had their three-match winning streak stopped.

LAFC was buoyed by the return of forward Carlos Vela to the starting lineup.

Vela suffered a right quad injury in the April 17 opener against Austin and missed the next three games before he played the final 20 minutes in last Sunday’s loss at Seattle.
