Pappa leaves it late against Galaxy

AFP

AFP, LOS ANGELES: Colorado newcomer Marco Pappa struck in the dying seconds to lift the Rapids to a 1-0 Major League Soccer victory over Los Angeles Galaxy, whose coach Bruce Arena was left fuming on Saturday.
The contest at a windswept DSG Park in Denver looked headed to a scoreless draw until Pappa, a 67th minute substitute, scored from close range in the fifth minute of injury time—Arena calling it “ridiculous” and “disgraceful” that so much injury time was added on.
The Rapids’ Kevin Doyle had chipped a pass into the area and Galaxy defender Daniel Steres’ clearance attempt floated toward Pappa, who fired a left-footed volley under the crossbar.
Pappa, who was traded from the Seattle Sounders in the off-season and had to work his way back to fitness after he was stabbed in the side in December, was making his home debut for the Rapids.
His goal put an exclamation point on a match that often dragged. Colorado dominated possession in the first half but were unable to produce quality chances against a Galaxy team that seemed intent on slowing down the pace and could muster no attack after the interval.
Los Angeles’ best chance came when Belgian Jelle Van Damme, acquired in January from Standard Liege and making his MLS debut, hit the crossbar in the 29th minute.
