Fire rally past Rapids

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. — Dasan Robinson scored in second-half injury time to cap the Chicago Fire's three-goal rally in 18 minutes for a 3-2 win over Colorado.

Robinson's header from 6 yards beat Matt Pickens to the left side of the net for the Fire (10-5-8), who trailed 2-0 in the 58th minute after a pair of goals by Rapids striker Omar Cummings in a 10-minute span.

Though he was already on a yellow card, Robinson celebrated the winner by taking his jersey off and getting himself a red, but the Rapids (8-7-6) were unable to find a late equalizer to salvage a point.

Cuauhtemoc Blanco started the comeback by converting a penalty in the 72nd minute before Mike Banner tied the match at 2 with a 16-yard shot in the 85th.

Chicago moved within one point of Columbus for the Eastern Conference lead, while Colorado remained fifth in the West, nine points behind Houston.

RED BULLS 3, FC DALLAS 2: At East Rutherford, N.J., Juan Pablo Angel scored his second goal with two minutes left in regulation, helping the New York Red Bulls snap a 13-match winless streak.

It was the RedBulls' first victory since May 8 against SanJose, and gave interim coach RichieWilliams a winning debut. Williams took over after JuanCarlosOsorio resigned Friday.

FCDallas (6-11-5) dropped to 0-4-1 in its last five road matches.

Angel missed the previous two matches due to a concussion sustained in CONCACAFChampions League play. Angel scored the go-ahead goal when he knocked in the rebound of MacoumbaKandji's shot in the 88th minute.

SOUNDERS 1, DYNAMO 1: At Houston, Nate Jaqua scored in the 70th minute to give Seattle a point and move the Sounders into a tie for third in the Western Conference.
