The 2nd game of the MLS Playoffs went down last night as the reigning champs were up against the Black & Yellow of the Columbus Crew. After what looked as the whiteout conditions of the day before it was amazing that they were not in snowshoes to play the game. The game was end to end with both sides having clear chances, but solid goalkeeping from both Pickens & Hesmer kept the game close throughout the entire game. The breakthrough was for Colorado Rapids just before the half when Kimura found space down the right wing to cut back a clear pas to Jamaican international Omar Cummings to drive the one-timer to the near side of the post to claim the difference. Now the Rapids have 2 days to prepare for their next match against Sporting Kansas City in the next round to defending their MLS Cup.
