Second-half goals by Ross Paule and Jorge Dely Valdes boosted the Colorado Rapids to a 4-2 victory over the San Jose Clash in a Major League Soccer game last night.

Scott Benedetti and Shaun Bartlett scored second-half goals to give the Colorado Rapids a 2-0 victory over the New England Revolution in a Major League Soccer game last night. Benedetti scored in the 58th minute to break a 0-0 tie, and Bartlett, a South African star reportedly coveted by several leading European teams, got the insurance goal in the 73d minute. The Revolution, in fourth place in the MLS Eastern Division, got some good news earlier in the day when it was announced that United States national team forward Joe-Max Moore, who had been playing in Germany, has signed with Major League Soccer and been assigned to New England.

The New England Revolution needed a shoot-out to defeat the Colorado Rapids in a Major League Soccer game last night, despite having led by two goals with less than 15 minutes left. New England (4-3) led by 2-0 on goals early in the second half by Alberto Naveda, who scored on a long-distance shot, and Geoff Aunger, who converted a penalty kick. But Roy Wegerle got a goal back for Colorado (3-5) in the 76th minute, and Jean Harbor tied the score in the 88th. New England, which would have moved into second place in the Eastern Division by winning in regulation time, got only one point in the standings for winning in the shoot-out and remained in third.

Jean Harbor scored in the ninth minute of the game for a 1-0 edge, and Marcelo Balboa made it 2-1 in the Rapids' favor in the 49th minute. But Los Angeles tied it 1-1 on a goal by Eduardo Hurtado on the goal in the 25th minute and at 2-2 on a goal by Harut Karapetyan in the 53d minute. The Galaxy then won the shootout by 4-3.

Zach Pfeffer, who was signed at 15 as a homegrown player with the Union in December 2010, had a natural reaction when he heard he had been traded to the Colorado Rapids to complete a draft-day deal. "When I first heard about it, I was a little disappointed," Pfeffer said Friday in a phone interview. "Obviously, being from this area and playing with the hometown team, I wanted to assert myself and make a name and a solid impact, and I wanted to build off last year. " On Thursday, the Rapids traded the No. 2 overall selection in the MLS SuperDraft to the Union for general allocation money and a player to be named later.

BALTIMORE - The Union drove down I-95 Thursday and took control of the Major League Soccer SuperDraft at the Baltimore Convention Center. Already armed with the No. 3 and 6 picks in the first round, the Union acquired the No. 2 selection from the Colorado Rapids for general allocation money and a player to be named later. Then, the Union selected three defenders among their four picks, hoping to fortify a defense that allowed 55 goals during a 10-17-7 season. The final two rounds of the draft are to be Jan. 19. The Union selected Georgetown defenders with their first two picks, center back Joshua Yaro at No. 2 and right back Keegan Rosenberry at No. 3. At No. 6, the Union drafted Creighton's Fabian Herbers, who is listed as a midfielder but has more experience at forward, a key need for the Union.

IT WAS appropriate that when Earnie Stewart was introduced as the the Union's sporting director, he took a picture wearing a construction helmet with a work site in the background. Going into its sixth season, the Union should not be a franchise starting a major restructuring job. Had things gone by the design, the Union would have entered Thursday's MLS SuperDraft looking for enhancements to a contending franchise seeking to improve its championship drive chances. Instead, it was one of the early instances of Stewart putting his mark on a new direction for the Union.

Not surprisingly, neither sporting director Earnie Stewart nor coach Jim Curtin was willing to tip his hand when discussing the Union's plans for the Major League Soccer SuperDraft on Thursday. This is the first draft for Stewart and a critical one for a team coming off a 10-17-7 season. The Union will have two of the top six picks. They will select third (their own pick) and sixth, a pick acquired in a trade with Houston. If he is available, it would be a surprise if the Union didn't select left back Brandon Vincent of NCAA champion Stanford at No. 3. Vincent is not attending the MLS combine in Florida for a good reason.

The Union have officially cut ties with goalkeeper Zach MacMath, trading him to the Colorado Rapids for a natural second-round selection in the 2017 Major League Soccer SuperDraft. (A natural pick is the highest selection in that round if the team has multiple draft choices). MacMath, 24, was the Union's first-round draft choice, selected fifth overall, in 2011. In four seasons with the Union, he started 102 games and had a record of 34-39-29. Before last season he was loaned to Colorado, where he played in just three MLS games and two U.S. Open Cup matches.

THE OPPORTUNITY for Andre Blake is finally here. What the young goalkeeper of the Philadelphia Union does with it to jump-start his stalled career is on him. Last Saturday, Blake, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 SuperDraft, made just his second MLS start for the Union against Montreal. Blake made several fine saves and logged a clean sheet in the 1-0 victory. On Saturday at PPL Park, Blake will start against the New England Revolution. It has been an odd journey for Blake - one filled with injury, curious decisions by management and frustrating time on the bench.

UNION COACH Jim Curtin warned against it in the buildup to last night's game. In the U.S. Open Cup, anything can happen. Even a United Soccer League team playing without one of its best players - one that's leading the Division III Professional League's standings - has the ability to knock off a Major League Soccer team. Especially when 120 minutes of scoreless play leads to penalty kicks. Luck needs to be on your side. And it was, as goalie John McCarthy guessed right three times to help the Union escape with a 1-0 (3-1 PKs)

ALTHOUGH THE Union's first game of the season lacked goals, it did not lack intrigue. That was especially true when it came to the decisions manager Jim Curtin made as he looked to break through the Colorado Rapids' miserly defense. In the first half of last Saturday's 0-0 tie, Curtin deployed two strikers, lining up new signings Fernando Aristeguieta and C.J. Sapong next to each other. Because they haven't been together for long, it was likely the best way for both to get on the field.
