MOST COMMENTED

[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] The Colorado Rapids were two minutes away from making it 7-for-7 for MLS clubs in the Concacaf Champions League, but they conceded a sloppy goal and had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Real Espana in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Still, the away point could serve the Rapids well as they look to advance to the quarterfinals in their first year of play in the regional club championship.

Jeff Larentowicz had put the Rapids ahead with a first-time shot in first-half stoppage time, and Colorado looked to be headed to an unlikely win until Kosuke Kimura's attempted clearance went right to sub Julio Rodriguez, who volleyed in the equalizer from close range.

Like the Seattle Sounders, 1-0 winners at Monterrey on Tuesday, the Rapids rested many of their regulars. Larentowicz was one of only three players to start both Saturday's MLS game against Chivas USA and Tuesday's game against Real Espana.

Goalie Steward Ceus came up with many big saves, stopping Jairo Puerto in stoppage time.

Aug. 23 in San Pedro Sula
Real Espana 1 Colorado Rapids 1. Goals: Rodriguez 88; Larentowicz 45.
Real Espana -- Hernandez, Bica (Colon, 45), Calderon (Pavon, 67), M.Martinez, Tejeda, Rodriguez, Morales, Delgado, Mejia, C.Martinez (Puerto, 45), Lalin.
Colorado -- Ceus, Kimura, Earls, Holody, Palguta (Moor 69), Nane, Larentowicz,  Thompson, LaBauex (Nyassi 80), Cummings (Amarikwa 71), Akpan.
