two converted by the Galaxy's Landon Donovan. The teams traded goals six minutes apart in the first half, and then just as the match seemed set to dwindle to a 1-1 draw, it suddenly burst into life with the first of the penalty kicks in the 86th minute. Just two minutes later the Rapids equalized through a spot kick of their own, but Donovan sealed the win with a bitterly contested penalty called just as the clock ticked over for the full 90 minutes to give the home side the victory.
