Dominique Badji scored his first goal of the season in the 82nd minute to help the Colorado Rapids beat the New York Red Bulls 2-1 on a snow-covered field Saturday night.
 
Jermaine Jones won the ball in the New York end and Luis Solignac fed Badji, who rolled the ball across goalkeeper Luis Robles just inside the right post.
 
The start was delayed and halftime was extended to plow the field. Stoppage time was increased to six minutes so the lines could be shoveled and an orange ball was used.
 
Ronand Zubar knocked in a header in the 60th minute to end the Red Bulls' scoreless streak of more than 4 1/2 matches. Zubar's first goal, on a cross from Sacha Kljestan, was the first goal for the Red Bulls (1-6-0) on the road this season and the first at home allowed by the Rapids (4-2-1).
 
New York had been shut out in four straight games and five times this season. The Red Bulls hadn't scored since a 4-3 victory over Houston in their third game on March 19, getting the final goal in the 83rd minute.
 
Jones scored 21 minutes into his Colorado debut, rolling the ball in after a cross out of traffic from the goal line by Mekeil Williams.
