From combined dispatches
Rapids 3, Earthquakes 0
DENVER Chris Carrieri scored on a 30-yard pass from Carlos Valderrama in the ninth minute and David Kramer had six saves as Colorado beat San Jose yesterday.
Zach Kinsley scored on a header off Mark Chung's corner kick in the 66th minute. Chung scored on a penalty kick against Jon Conway in extra time after Joe Cannon was ejected on a red card for tripping Seth Trembly on a breakaway.
It was Kramer's second shutout of the season for the Rapids (11-10-3), who trail the Western Division-leading Earthquakes (13-8-3) with four games remaining.
Revolution 2, Fire 1
NAPERVILLE, Ill. Daouda Kante scored in the 89th minute to lead visiting New England to a victory over Chicago.
Working inside the six-yard box, Kante sped ahead of defender Jim Curtin to head Steve Ralston's corner kick past goalkeeper Zach Thornton for his first MLS goal.
Curtin opened the scoring in the 50th minute, leaping above the New England defense to head Ante Razov's free kick past goalkeeper Adin Brown. After replacing Rusty Pierce in the 59th minute, Wolde Harris evened the score in the 65th minute.
Harris got behind Fire defender C.J. Brown and used a pass from Winston Griffiths to score from ten yards.
New England (8-14-1) moved to within four points of the MetroStars for the final MLS playoff spot. It was the first time all season that the Revolution won after allowing an opponent to score the first goal.
The Fire (10-10-4) remain in first place in the Eastern Conference and lost at home for the first time since June 22.
