COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Kamani Hill and Andre Akpan scored to help the Colorado Rapids beat the playoff-bound Houston Dynamo 2-0 on Saturday night.

Colorado (11-19-4) finished one of the worst campaigns in franchise history with only its second two-game winning streak of the year. The Rapids were 3-5-3 in their last 11 games.

Goalkeeper Steward Ceus posted his second shutout in his second career MLS start.

Houston (14-9-11) had already rapped up fifth place in the Eastern Conference and its sixth playoff appearance in seven years. The Dynamo will play Chicago in the wild-card game Wednesday night in Chicago.
