MLSlogoUpdate: The Colorado Rapids picked up a point tonight that pulls them even with the Sounders in the MLS points race.

They did it with a Conor Casey penalty kick in stoppage time, to manage a 1-1 draw with San Jose.

The final foul was not only in stoppage time, but it came at 2:58 of what had been announced as three minutes of stoppage time.

Previous: A reminder that Colorado visits San Jose at 8 tonight on ESPN2. And, of course, the game has implications for the Sounders.

With a win, the Rapids move past Seattle in the MLS standings, and with a draw they pull even.

    New England (next week’s Sounders opponent) just ended with a 1 to 1 draw at New York- leaves New England at the back of the play-off hunting pack at 34 points, but with a game in hand against most.

    Only half paying attention to the Internet audio, but 1-0 to San Jose late in the first half. It’ll be very good if that score holds.

    Rapids look kinda half in this game while SJ seems like they’re really enjoying their role as spoiler. Not a bad match though. I wish Jaqua was more like Connor Kasey.

    In other news. Messi signed a new contract to 2016. The buyout? $368 million. My math isn’t great but I think that means he could buy the entire MLS and have a couple hundred million to play with.

    Yeah, San Jose is outplaying the Rapids- good for us. The bottom four have been showing some life of late, no pushover games on anyone’s schedule.

  5. derekyoung says:

    Well this is SJ’s to lose. They’re just the better team tonight. MF possession isn’t even close but Kimura looks great. I wish we had someone who crossed like him. By the way, is it weird that I confuse Kamara for Kimura.

  6. derekyoung says:

    Cannon is now coming absolutely huge. Rapidly becoming his biggest fan. Get it, Rapids, rapidly. I know, terrible.

    Come on SJ!

    I love ESPN- 89th minute, lose signal, go to commercial…

  8. derekyoung says:

    Yeah, ESPN, you were dead to me after the DC United fiasco. Then you came alive zombie-style, and I killed you again with a shovel.

    You’re not even undead to me now.

  9. jimkingjr says:

    Penalty kick in stoppage- controversial call- game all tied up.

    That’s it- San Jose has points stolen- the teams meet again in Colorado on Wednesday.

    Wow. If you didn’t tune back, Rapids get a PK in the end of stoppage and Colorado steals a free point.
