VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Axel Sjoberg scored late in extra time to lift Colorado to a 2-2 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night, extending the Rapids’ unbeaten streak to 13 games.
Sjoberg’s goal silenced a sellout crowd of 22,120 at BC Place Stadium after Kevin Doyle made a pass from the side of the net that Sjoberg headed past Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted.
Vancouver’s Christian Techera had scored on a penalty kick in the 87th minute to give the Whitecaps a 2-1 lead.
The penalty was awarded after Techera was hauled down from behind in the penalty box by Colorado defender Jared Watts.
Doyle also scored in the 59th minute for Colorado (9-2-7), which has allowed a league-low 13 goals.
Defender Kendall Waston scored in the 10th minute for Vancouver (7-8-4), which moved into a tie with Sporting Kansas City for fifth in the Western Conference.
