Impact Vs. Rapids Final Score: Late Goal Gives Colorado 3-2 Win

The Colorado Rapids (6-6-1, 19 pts) and the Montreal Impact (3-7-3, 12 pts) scored four goals in the first 48 minutes, but the final goal -- the deciding goal -- did not come until the 83rd minute, when a controversial goal gave the Rapids a 3-2 win.

Colorado took a 2-1 lead in the first half when Jeff Larentowicz and Drew Moor first erased and moved ahead of the opening goal from Patrice Bernier. But just minutes into the second half, Andrew Wenger tied the game at 2-2 after Bernier cut through the Rapids defense to feed Wenger the easy shot.

The game-decider, however, did not come without scandal. After an initial header attempt from the Rapids sent the ball dancing along the top railing, a whistle -- presumably from one of the officials -- blew, but the Rapids played on as Castrillon knocked the ball in for a 3-2 advantage:

The Rapids ultimately took the game as G Matt Pickens collected 4 saves on the night and the Rapids reached 19 points for a fourth place standing in the Western Conference. Colorado will be back in action on Tuesday when the club travels to Tampa to take on the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the NASL.
