There, in a gut-wrenching game in which the next-to-last Major League Soccer playoff spot was on the line, the Colorado Rapids had a post-season ticket in their back pocket with less than one minute remaining in regulation. They led, 1-0, on a 19th-minute goal by Conor Casey, and had only to see out the clock.
