Reigning MLS player of the month Graham Zusi played like he is trying to make it two in a row Wednesday night. With Sporting KC down one at home to Colorado in the 62nd minute, Zusi corralled the ball after CJ Sapongâ€™s near miss and scored his third goal of the year.
Sporting KC held on for the draw and extended its unbeaten streak to nine straight MLS games. SportingÂ (5-6-6) is also undefeated at Sporting Livestrong Park.
The Rapids (5-5-9) are the reigning MLS Cup champs, they jumped on KC early when Conor Casey settled a free kick in the box and snuck the ball by Sporting goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen.
CJ Sapong, who came in for Teal Bunbury in the 59th minute, nearly gave KC all three points with a shot in the 94th minute but Colorado made the tough save.
Sporting is home again Saturday night against Chivas USA.
