Byron Cephers’ goal in the 90th minute gave the Real Colorado Foxes a 2-2 tie with the Rapids Reserves Wednesday morning at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
The home side posted an earlier lead when guest player Brian Ackley scored in the 6th minute on a 20-yard strike.
The Foxes' Kris Banghart even score in the 17th minute when his free kick blast found the upper left corner of the target past a diving Chris Sharpe.
Newly signed midfielder Jamie Smith returned the favor in the 61st minute off his own free kick that found Ty Harden, who deflected the ball into the back of the net putting the Rapids up 2-1.
The Rapids Reserves looked to have the game in-hand and take their third straight win over Real this season before Cephers’ late game heroics.
Colorado return to the training pitch tomorrow for two more days of preparation before hosting the defending MLS Cup champion Columbus Crew this Saturday at 7:30 pm at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
