KANSAS CITY, Kan.—C.J. Sapong and Aurelien Collin scored in a cold, driving rainstorm Wednesday night, giving Sporting Kansas City a 2-0 victory over the injury-depleted Colorado Rapids and sending them on to the Eastern Conference finals.

Graham Zusi assisted on each of the goals for Sporting KC, which beat Colorado 2-0 on Sunday to open the two-game, aggregate-goal playoff. Sporting KC will play the Houston Dynamo or Philadelphia Union in the conference finals Sunday at Livestrong Sporting Park.

Collin scored in the 28th minute when he deflected Zusi's free kick, and Sapong returned from a scary collision in front of the net early in the second half to direct a perfect header past Colorado goalkeeper Matt Pickens in the 76th minute.
