Red Bulls fall to Rapids, 4-1

MERCE CITY, Colo. -- Sanna Nyassi scored two of his three goals in the first half to lead the Rapids to a 4-1 victory over the Red Bulls.

It was Nyassi's first three goals of the year and only the seventh time a Rapids player had scored three times in a game. Wells Thompson added a goal for Colorado (7-6-9).

The Rapids needed a scoring lift as leading scorer Conor Casey earlier in the day had surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon. Casey, the last Rapids to have a three-goal game, is expected to be sidelined for at least eight months.

Thierry Henry scored his 10th goal of the year for the Red Bulls (6-5-11), who had been blanked in their previous two games.

The Red Bulls are winless, 0-2-7 in their last nine road games.
