CHESTER, PA. - The Colorado Rapids, who rallied from a two-goal deficit to earn a 3-3 road draw with the 10-man Union in an entertaining interconference MLS battle on Saturday.

Conor Casey, Sheanon Williams and Andrew Wegner all scored for the Union (4-8-7) with Dillon Serna, Dillon Powers and Deshorn Brown recording goals for the Rapids (7-5-6).

With the Union appearing headed to victory, Brown stunned the sellout crowd by tying the game at 3-3 in the 86th minute with a terrific turn on a Gabriel Torres pass and a shot inside the post.

Seven minutes earlier, Powers converted a penalty kick to cut the Union's lead to one after Michael Lahoud was given a red card for kicking Jared Watts in the face.

In the 74th minute, Wenger put Philadelphia up 3-1 when he scored his first goal since April, tapping one in through traffic.

Long before the second-half drama unfolded, Williams broke a 1-1 deadlock in the 31st minute when his glancing header off a Cristian Maidana corner kick caught Rapids goalkeeper Clint Irwin flat-footed.

Irwin made a great save on a Philadelphia header as time ran out in regulation to preserve the tie and one point in the standings for the Rapids.
