Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - Davy Arnaud scored in the 20th minute and
the Kansas City Wizards held on for a 1-1 draw against the Colorado Rapids on
Saturday night at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
Kansas City earned its first road win in Major League Soccer on Wednesday, and
Arnaud helped the Wizards (4-8-4) earn their second straight road result with
his second goal of the season.
Conor Casey scored in the 74th for Colorado (6-4-5) and hit the post with just
one minute remaining in normal time. The Rapids are winless in five straight.
Arnaud opened the scoring off an assist from Craig Rocastle, who put the K.C.
captain through for a one-on-one chance against Colorado goalie Matt Pickens.
Arnaud dribbled in alone and fired inside the right post from 12 yards.
Kei Kamara and Arnaud had back-to-back chances denied by Pickens late in the
first half, then Teal Bunbury - who scored the lone goal on Wednesday in a 1-0
win at Columbus - hit a shot that bounced off the right post and then the left
post and out.
Colorado finally showed life in the second half, and Casey responded with his
seventh goal of the year to tie the game. Jamie Smith played the ball to Casey
and Casey cut back to lose a defender and then slipped a shot past K.C. goalie
Casey broke into the area alone in the 89th and rounded Nielsen but, with the
net empty, hit the left post as the Rapids settled for a draw for the fourth
time in their last five matches.
Colorado will try to end its winless run July 25 when it visits Seattle, while
Kansas City returns home to host Toronto FC on July 31.
