The Fire managed to salvage a point against the team currently sitting at the bottom of the MLS standings. After going down 2-0 in the first fifteen minutes, an own goal followed by a brilliant Aleksandar Katai strike leveled the game in the 24th minute.
The Fire controlled most of the play but couldn't break through after Katai's goal. The Rapids had the best chance of the second half however, but Richard Sanchez denied Joe Mason's shot in stoppage time.
Johan Kappelhof will miss the next match due to yellow card accumulation. He also received a straight red card in the 84th minute.
