MLS Standings 2012: Colorado Rapids Sitting 10 Points Behind Real Salt Lake

The Colorado Rapids (6-6-1, 19 points) currently sit at No. 5 in the 2012 MLS Standings, but with five seasons remaining in the Major League Soccer, the Rapids have more than enough time to catch the first place Real Salt Lake (9-3-2, 29 points).

Of concern for the Rapids is their ever-slim goal difference, maintaining a 20-to-18 goals-to-goals-allowed ratio. The best six teams in the current MLS standings all have a goal difference of 7 goals or greater.

Here is a look at the complete MLS Standings, courtesy of MLSSoccer.com:

Rapids Vs. Sporting KC Final Score: Colorado Falls 2-0 In Open Cup

The Colorado Rapids caught some bad luck on Tuesday night in losing to Sporting Kansas City 2-0 in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Sporting KC advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament thanks in part to an own goal by Colorado keeper Matt Pickens that followed a remarkable save. Pickens made a stop on Aurelien Collin’s header that followed a long free kick from Graham Zusi. Pickens got a hand on the header to block the shot, but the ball bounced off the post and into the net to give KC a 1-0 lead.

Teal Bunbury would make it 2-0 KC in the 79th minute off a headed assist from teammate C.J. Sapong. It was Bunbury's third goal in two meetings with Colorado this season.

KC will face the Dayton Dutch Lions in the quarterfinals of the tournament on June 26.
