Bassett caps flurry, Rapids beat Dynamo 3-1 for 3rd straight

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) Cole Bassett capped a four-goal flurry late in the first half and the Colorado Rapids beat the Houston Dynamo 3-1 on Saturday night for their third straight victory.

Bassett pressured goalkeeper Marko Maric to switch feet while playing out of the back and a leaping Bassett got his right foot on the attempted clearance, blocking it back into the goal to make it 3-1 in the 42nd minute.

Sam Vines opened the scoring in the 29th minute for Colorado (3-1-1). Michael Barrios cut a pass back into the center of the penalty area and Vines finished it with a left-footed shot. Diego Rubio doubled the Rapids' lead in the 36th minute, heading home Barrios' cross.

Christian Ramirez cut the deficit to 2-1 for the Dynamo (2-2-2) in the 39th minute with a skidding right-footed shot from a step inside the 18-yard box.
