With 11,416 in attendance, the fans of Commerce City, Colo. were treated to quite a show when Omar Cummings scored two amazing goals and gave an assist to help the Colorado Rapids. The victory would continue their home unbeaten streak over D.C. United to 9-0 with a 3-0 victory on Saturday night.
Shortly after ten minutes into the game, Cummings took a pass from Captain Pablo Mastroeni and ran past defender Greg Janicki before pausing in the box and curling the ball past Josh Wicks in the United (5-2-8) goal. Cummings found the back of the net just before halftime from a near-impossible angle to give the Rapids a 2-0 lead.
Cummings, who paired with recently acquired Pat Noonan up front for Colorado (5-2-5), has five goals this season. Four minutes into the second half, Cummings dashed into the box and passed to midfielder Colin Clark who scored a third for the Rapids.
Not bad...not bad at all.
