It feels so much better when you score a late equalizer rather than concede one, and the Rapids have experienced both sides of that particular coin in their two most recent games.

Earning a point, or more, on the road is not to be sniffed at but Saturday’s showing at Philadelphia – while showing pluck and spirit – also highlighted deficiencies defensively.

CHESTER, Pa. – Two goals in the last 11 minutes allowed the Colorado Rapids to snatch a point at PPL Park against ten-man Philadelphia Union on Saturday night, to stretch their unbeaten run to three games.

The turning point came on 79 minutes when, leading 3-1, the Union's midfielder Michael Lahoud was shown a red card for kicking Jared Watts in the face while both went for the ball, allowing Dillon Powers to convert from the penalty spot.
