CARSON, Calif. -- Rookie Deshorn Brown scored on a penalty kick in the 7th minute and the Colorado Rapids held on for a 1-0 victory over Chivas USA on Saturday night.

Brown converted from the penalty spot after he was knocked over by Eric Avila in Chivas' box when he took a pass from Dillon Powers. The Rapids (2-3-2), missing six top players due to injury, won back-to-back games for the first time this season.

Chivas USA (3-2-1) missed a penalty kick near the end of the first half, struggled to create scoring chances and lost for the first time in five games.

Chivas could have tied it after Jose Erick Correa was knocked down by Shane O'Neill as he leaped for a short cross from Laurent Courtois, but Correa fired off the crossbar, and Rapids goalkeeper Clint Irwin got low to save Carlos Alvarez's rebound from 19 yards.
