Most of the action occurred very early, with Tsubasa Endoh scoring for Toronto just 33 seconds after kickoff. Alejandro Pozeulo stripped the ball from Colorado right back Keegan Rosenberry. Pozuelo sent it over to Patrick Mullins, who one-timed it to Endoh for the goal.
The Rapids equalized two minutes later after a mistake from Toronto goalkeeper Quentin Westberg. Rapids forward Andre Shinyashiki found himself in the right place to send a rebound into the back of the net.
