  • Kei Kamara scored a header in the 81st minute as he rescued the Colorado Rapids to a 1-1 draw against the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night.
  • Chris Wondolowski scored on a penalty kick for the Earthquakes in the 59th minute before Sierra Leone’s Kamara scored the leveller after he was introduced. 
 
The goal took his tally to 129th MLS regular-season goal, placing him fifth on the all-time scoring charts and 32 goals behind MLS’s all-time leading scorer, San Jose’s 37-year-old Chris Wondolowski, who scored the opening goal of the match on a penalty kick.
 
 
“I think with Kei you have to start with genetics,” Rapids coach Robin Fraser said. “He’s obviously physically gifted. At his age, he’s as strong as can be.
 
He’s still fast, good timing, good jumper. He’s definitely blessed with good genes. And he takes very good care of himself. On top of that, he’s become a student of the game as he’s gone through it for so long. So, if you’re an intelligent player and you take care of yourself, and you have good genes, you can have a long career.”
