Rapids beat Dynamo 3-0

Aug 29, 2010 - 4:24 AM COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) -- Jamie Smith scored his first goal of the season, part of Colorado's season-high output, and the Rapids beat the Houston Dynamo 3-0 Saturday night.

Conor Casey had a goal and two assists and Omar Cummings added a goal for Colorado (8-6-7).

"We had four goals on three shots in the first half and that was good to see," Colorado coach Gary Smith said. "We've been having games where we had good shots and the shots ended up going somewhere else."

Smith got his goal less than two minutes into the game. Cummings had his first goal in five matches and Casey his first in his last four games.

"It was good to see our offense open up," Casey said. "We came very aggressive and never let up and we got the results we wanted."

The Rapids haven't scored more than one goal in eight matches and have scored three in a game just once, against Toronto on April 18.

Goalkeeper Ian Joyce was hardly tested while making his first start of the season.

Houston (6-11-5 ) is 1-9-2 on the road.

The Dynamo played most of the game short-handed after midfielder Lovel Palmer received a red card in the 10th minute for hit on Colorado's Pablo Mastroeni.

"I think both guys should get red carded in that exchange," Houston coach Dominic Kinnear. "It's tough when you send a guy off and the goal comes right after you send him off. You definitely put yourself in a hole."
