Colorado downs Sporting KC, 1-0

July 16, 2016


— Marlon Hairston scored, U.S. national team star Tim Howard had his second shutout in three games with Colorado and the Rapids beat Sporting Kansas City 1-0 to extend their franchise-record unbeaten streak to 14 games. Colorado (10-2-7) hasn’t lost since April 9.

Hairston, who came on for Marco Pappa in the 62nd minute, deflected a Sporting pass, then took a feed from Dillon Powers and curled a right-footer from just outside the box into the top-right corner of the net.

Howard, playing in his third MLS game since 2003, had three saves. He played 13 seasons in the English Premier League.
