Short-handed Rapids slip past Union 2-1

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) -- Jaime Castrillon and Tony Cascio scored and

the Colorado Rapids defeated the Philadelphia Union 2-1 on

Sunday.

The Rapids (2-0) played short-handed for more than 36 minutes

and continued their strong play after a 2-0 win over Columbus in

the opener.

Castrillon put the Rapids ahead 1-0 in the 56th minute when he

corralled a loose ball in front of the net and tapped the ball

past Philadelphia goalkeeper Zac MacMath.

Omar Cummings, who picked up an assist, sent the crossing pass

toward MacMath, but the ball slipped through his fingers.

Colorado kept the pressure on after midfielder Jeff Larentowicz

received a red card in the 58th minute.

In the 62nd minute, Cascio's goal extended the Rapids'

advantage.

Forward Lionard Pajoy scored in the 67th minute on a header.

The Union (0-2) began their third season following a trip to the

Eastern Conference semifinals. Though Philadelphia lost to the

Houston Dynamo in the two-match series, the front office brought

in 14 new players this season.

So far, it's been a struggle.

Philadelphia lost 3-1 at Portland last Monday and managed just

one goal again.

The Rapids remained unbeaten all time (3-0-2) against the Union.
