Jamie Cstrillon cancels out an early strike from Marcelo Sarvas to give Colorado Rapids a share of the points at home to Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer.

Colorado Rapids' attempts to qualify for the post-season playoffs in Major League Soccer were all but ended by an entertaining draw against the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Rapids needed to win to keep their hopes alive but fell behind after just ten minutes when Marcelo Sarvas lashed home after Robbie Keane's shot was blocked on the edge of the area.

Galaxy's lead lasted just six minutes as Rapids found an instant response through Jamie Castrillon, who calmly slotted home an incisive pass from Hunter Freeman.

Both sides created chances in the half but could not find a crucial winning goal.

Omar Cummings came closest for the Rapids with an instinctive turn and shot that forced a strong save from Josh Saunders.

Galaxy held on for a point that cements their standing in the Western Conference, while Rapids are left needing a miracle turnaround as they sit eight points behind a playoff place.
