COMMERCE, CITY, Colo. (AP) — Lalas Abubakar scored in stoppage time to help the Colorado Rapids tie the Houston Dynamo 1-1.

Sam Vines lobbed an entry from nearly 40 yards out to Abubakar, who had slipped behind the defense, for a sliding finish from near the corner of the 6-yard box in the sixth minute of stoppage time.

It was the first MLS assist for Vines, a 21-year-old homegrown defender.

Colorado (2-3-4) is unbeaten in its last three games but is winless since back-to-back victories to open the regular season.

Houston's Christian Ramirez tapped in a left-footer to open the scoring less than 20 seconds into the second half.
