Final Score: Colorado 3, D.C. United 0
Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - The Colorado Rapids used a dominant
performance from striker Omar Cummings to defeat D.C. United 3-0 at Dick's
Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night.
Cummings scored the game's first two goals, then set up the third to help his
club extend its unbeaten streak to 10 games.
He opened the scoring just 11 minutes in when he took a pass from Pablo
Mastroeni and streak down the left side of the field, outrunning United
defender Greg Janicki, before firing a perfect shot into the far post side
Cummings doubled the home side's lead seconds before the first-half break when
he intercepted an errant Avery John pass, broke into the United area and cut
to his right, around United goalkeeper Josh Wicks, before burring a tough
angle shot for his fifth goal of the season.
The Rapids put the game out of reach just four minutes after the break when
Cummings again raced past Janicki, before playing a low pass to a wide open
Colin Clark art the back post. Clark blasted the shot off Wicks and in for his
third goal of the season.
The Rapids (5-2-5) will aim to continue their surge when they host FC Dallas
on Wednesday, while United (5-3-8) is off until a July 4 match at Columbus.
