COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Luis Solignac scored in the 18th minute and the Colorado Rapids held off 10-man Toronto FC for a 1-0 win on Saturday night.
Solignac controlled Marco Pappa's chip and sent a right-footed shot into the right corner of the goal. Pappa, in his first year with Colorado (2-1-1), has a goal and two assists to account for all three of the Rapids' goals this season.
Benoit Cheyrou was sent off with his second yellow card in the 13th minute after he collided with Bobby Burling on a header. He received his first yellow two minutes earlier for a hard tackle against Eric Miller.
Sebastian Giovinco knuckled a free kick over the crossbar in the 92nd minute for Toronto FC's last chance to pull even.
Toronto (1-2-1) has completed half of its eight-game road trip to start the season while awaiting renovations to BMO Field.
