Rapids beat Minnesota United, snap 7-game losing streak

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Yannick Boli and Niki Jackson scored second-half goals and the Colorado Rapids beat Minnesota United 2-0 on Saturday to snap a seven-game losing streak.

Colorado (7-19-6) entered a loss shy of tying a club record for consecutive losses — set this season. Minnesota (11-18-3) was eliminated from playoff contention last week after losing to Philadelphia.

Boli opened the scoring in the 61st minute by heading Marlon Hairston’s curling cross into the upper corner of the goal. It was Boli’s second goal of the season.

Jackson capped it in stoppage time by intercepting a back-pass and chipping it over goalkeeper Matthew Lampson, who had come out of his area.

After Jackson’s goal, there was a skirmish on the sideline. Colorado defender Tommy Smith and Minnesota midfielder Harrison Heath both received red cards, and Minnesota goalkeeper coach John Pascarella was also dismissed.

Minnesota midfielder Darwin Quintero scored in the 51st minute but it was taken away after a video review for being offside. Ibson tied it at 1 in second-half stoppage time but it was overturned again for an offside.
