Nick LaBrocca scores late, Rapids draw with 10-man FC Dallas 1-1
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Nick LaBrocca scored in the 79th minute and the Colorado Rapids tied 10-man FC Dallas 1-1 on Friday night.
Colorado (1-2-4) ended its long winless and scoreless streaks 14 days ago with a 4-0 victory at Dallas (4-2-2).
LaBrocca's equalizer was collaborative effort. Lucas Pittinari chipped a ball to the edge of the 6-yard box and Dillon Powers redirected it in front of goal. LaBrocca beat goalkeeper Dan Kennedy to the loose ball and slid it in before the two collided.
Dallas opened the scoring in the 31st minute when Mauro Diaz capped Fabian Castillo's skilled individual effort. Castillo dribbled down the right sideline, zigzagged through the defense in the penalty box with two stunning cutbacks and found Diaz at the far post.
FC Dallas played most of the second half a man down after Blas Perez was handed a red card in the 59th minute for a foul against Drew Moor.
