Colorado Rapids 1-0 LA Galaxy: Sanchez golazo earns Rapids win

The Colorado Rapids dealt the visiting LA Galaxy their first loss in MLS since the league's opening weekend with a 1-0 result at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

Colorado went ahead in the 20th minute. A cross found Vicente Sanchez in the wide area of the penalty box, and he chipped Jaime Penedo with a perfectly-picked shot.

Los Angeles wasted a penalty in the second half. Drew Moor took out Rob Friend in the box and a kick was awarded, but Robbie Keane's effort was poor and went wide right.

Colorado is now 4-2-2 on the year, while the Galaxy fall to 2-2-2.
