COMMERCE CITY, Colo., April 22 (UPI) -- Los Angeles goalkeeper Josh Saunders turned aside a penalty kick in the 91st minute Saturday, ensuring the Galaxy's 2-1 victory over Colorado.

Rapids substitute Andre Akpan was taken down during Colorado's desperate efforts to gain the equalizer with time running out and Omar Cummings was awarded a penalty shot.

But Saunders guessed correctly and made a diving stop on Cummings' shot, allowing Los Angeles (3-3-0) to hang on for its second straight win.

Colorado's Marvell Wynne scored an own-goal and Landon Donovan netted the go-ahead tally in the 39th minute for the Galaxy.

Cummings got the only goal for the Rapids (3-4-0).
