Rapids


DALLAS | Maynor Figueroa and Roland Lamah scored in the first 10 minutes and FC Dallas snapped a 10-game winless stretch with a 2-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night. Dallas (10-9-11), the Supporters’ Shield winner last year, won for the first time since July 22. It was the third longest winless run in club history. Colorado (7-18-5) was eliminated from playoff contention.


NYCFC’s David Villa, Toronto’s Michael Bradley and Chicago’s Bastian Schweinsteiger are among the fan selections for next month’s Major League Soccer All-Star Game. Schweinsteiger was on Germany’s 2014 World Cup team. He is joined on the MLS squad by Chicago Fire teammate Nemanja Nikolic as first-time All-Stars. The MLS team will face Real Madrid and possibly star Cristiano Ronaldo on Aug. 2 at Chicago’s Soldier Field.


DENVER | As far as defender Kortne Ford can recall, his mom has never missed a home soccer game. Not with his youth teams when Laurie Ford was going through treatments for breast cancer. Not in high school. Not when he played at the University of Denver. Not now, with him a homegrown player for the Colorado Rapids and his mother dealing with the return of a disease that’s spread to her bones.
