MLS Regular Season
In coming back to earn a draw after being down 2-0 on Saturday against Sporting KC, the Colorado Rapids accomplished a rare feat that the club had only accomplished twice in it's 16+ year history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – It’s been an injury-riddled opening two months of the season for the Colorado Rapids, but they’ve found a way to hold serve due to contributions from unlikely sources.
Saturday night, two goals from two defenders – Tyrone Marshall in the 52nd minute and Kosuke Kimura in the 60th – helped the Rapids take a share of the points against Sporting Kansas City, despite dropping into a 2-0 deficit in under 14 minutes.
Head coach Oscar Pareja's post-game comments on the come from behind 2-2 draw with Sporting KC after surrendering two early goals:
"We are trying to find answers as the coaches and players. Because what happened in the first fifteen minutes is unacceptable for us as professionals and we know that and the players know. Because our fans deserve respect and what happened in the first fifteen minutes is not fair for them.
