Were Sporting KC denied a penalty kick for Serna handball vs. Colorado?

Johnny Russell saved the day for Sporting Kansas City at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Week 3, coming off the bench to nail a dramatic 88th minute free kick that earned a 1-1 road draw against the Colorado Rapids.

And the Scottish winger was involved in another potentially game-changing sequence as well.

Two minutes earlier Russell saw his low cross blocked in the Rapids penalty box by a lunging Dillon Serna, and as the Colorado Homegrown player got back to his feet, his hand appeared to make contact with the ball, sparking vociferous shouts for a penalty kick among Russell and the other Sporting players nearby. 

You be the judge: Did Serna's hand touch the ball? And if so, did it deserve a PK?

In the midst of a busy night in which he passed out eight yellow cards and one ejection, referee Allen Chapman elected to let play continue, and his video assistant referee Jorge Gonzalez did not see enough evidence of a clear and obvious error to justify a video review.
