The Colorado Rapids may have gotten their second draw of the season last night against Chivas USA, but it certainly felt a lot more like a loss. The Rapids seemed to dominate the game all night with 19 attempts on goal versus Chivas' 5.
This was a must win game for the 'Pids, we didn't lose, but it sure didn't feel good giving up a late equalizer on our home field.

Denver Posts' take on last nights game. Pretty much saying everything else from the last two stories here.
After last night our slim hopes of making the playoffs look even worse than before. But Pareja says they are still playing for this season.
