VIDEO: Colorado downs Crew 1-0, playoff field down to eight

* * *

Rapids forward Omar Cummings scored in the 45th minute and Colorado held it up to beat Columbus 1-0 at home Thursday and become the last team into the conference semifinals. Crew forward Andres Mendoza came closest to tying the score, but his rocket shot in the second half was denied by the crossbar.

As a side note, ex-Sounder Sanna Nyassi had some good moments on the left flank for the defending MLS Cup champs. Anyways, here’s what the schedule for the conference finals looks like (times are Pacific):
