Nguyen, Rossi help LAFC beat the Rapids 2-0
LOS ANGELES (AP) Lee Nguyen and Diego Rossi each scored in the second half to help Los Angeles FC beat the Colorado Rapids 2-0 on Sunday night.
Nguyen scored the opener for LAFC (12-7-6) in the 49th minute, gathering Jack Price's attempted clearance back into the area, rolling it back with his right foot to evade a defender and spinning around to create an opening for a left-footed finish.
In the 80th minute, Diego Rossi took Adama Diomande's back-heel flick just past midfield, dribbled it up the right side and finished his eighth goal of the season past goalkeeper Tim Howard.
The Rapids (6-13-6) had their three-game unbeaten streak snapped.
