Rapids conclude season with defeat of Dynamo

Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - The Colorado Rapids ended their season on a high note, earning a 2-0 defeat of the playoff-bound Houston Dynamo at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday.

Kamani Hill opened the scoring in the ninth minute, streaking down the center of the pitch and firing a shot from distance that needed a deflection to get past stand-in goalkeeper Tyler Deric.

The Rapids doubled the lead despite a sprawling save from Deric in the 76th minute. The 24-year-old, who was deputizing for first-choice 'keeper Tally Hall, produced a fine save, but Andre Akpan was arriving at the six-yard box to head home the rebound for his third goal of the season.

The win lifts Colorado (11-19-4) to 37 points on the season, good enough for seventh place in the Western Conference.

Houston (14-9-11) will travel to Toyota Park to face the Chicago Fire in Wednesday's Eastern Conference play-in game.
