This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Deshorn Brown scored twice, the first 13 seconds into the game, and the Colorado Rapids beat the undermanned Seattle Sounders 5-1 Saturday night in Commerce City, Colo.

Brown's initial goal set the record for the quickest in franchise history. Dwayne De Rosario holds the MLS mark with his score 11 seconds in for San Jose against Dallas on Sept. 27, 2003.

Dillon Powers, Gabriel Torres and Drew Moor added goals for Colorado (13-9-9). The Rapids, 4-2-0 over their last six games, moved into third place ahead of idle Los Angeles in the Western Conference.

New York 2, New England 2 • Tim Cahill's header in the final seconds of stoppage time lifted New York to a draw and clinched a playoff berth for the Red Bulls.

New England (11-11-9) trailed 1-0 until the last five minutes. It got a penalty kick from Lee Nguyen in the 85th minute and a breakaway goal from Diego Fagundez in the 90th in Harrison, N.J.

Philadelphia 1, Toronto 0 • Kleberson scored on a free kick from 25 yards out in stoppage time, lifting Philadelphia in Chester, Pa.

Kleberson's goal came just about at the end of six minutes of stoppage time and extended Philadelphia's winning streak to two.

The Union (12-10-9) moved past Chicago into fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

Kansas City 1, Columbus 0 • Ike Opara scored in the 17th minute for the game's lone goal in Columbus, Ohio.

Kansas City (15-10-6) entered with the best goals-against average in MLS (0.97) and prevented the Crew from attacking through the midfield. —
