Toronto FC defeats Colorado 2-1

TORONTO (AP) - Danny Koevermans scored twice in the second half to give Toronto FC a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday.

Toronto's Eric Avila found Ashtone Morgan alone on the left side, and the 20-year-old Canadian fullback then sent a cross through the penalty box that Koevermans tapped in.

The Dutch striker made it 2-0 eight minutes later with a glancing header off a cross from the right side by Nick Soolsma.

Koevermans, one of Toronto's three designated players, has six goals in seven games this season. He left the game in the 73rd minute.

Gambian striker Sanna Nyassi scored for the Rapids in the 69th. He buried a ball high in the net from close range.
