ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - Orlando City’s Aurelien Collin scored in the 90th minute to salvage a 2-2 draw for the hosts against MLS-leading New England on Friday.

Expansion team Orlando City, which had not scored in three straight home matches, fell behind by two goals but capped its comeback when Luke Boden crossed to Collin. His header hit the crossbar and bounced in with goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth unable to get a hand on it.

New England went ahead when Charlie Davies stole the ball from Amobi Okugo in the first half and scored in a fourth straight match. The Revolution double that lead in the 71st minute when Rafael Ramos attempted to chest the ball back to his goalkeeper only for Kelyn Rowe to steal in and put the ball in the net.

Orlando City pulled a goal back in the 75th minute when Cyle Larin headed in a Ramos cross.

New England extended its unbeaten streak to eight games after starting the season with back-to-back losses and is a point clear atop the standings ahead of D.C. United and Western Conference teams Dallas and Vancouver.


Colorado’s James Riley scored in stoppage time to give the Rapids yet another draw against San Jose.

After Chris Wondolowski scored in the 19th minute for San Jose (4-4-2), the Earthquakes seemed content to let the defense control the game in the second half. It finally cost them when Colorado’s Vicente Sanchez put a shot on goal that the goalkeeper punched straight to Riley, who floated the header over two defenders and inside the back post.

The Rapids still had time to almost snatch a victory but missed two headers, one hitting the post, and had to settle for their seventh draw in 10 games this season.
