COMMERCE CITY, Colo., March 10 (UPI) -- Jack McInerney scored in 79th minute Sunday, supplying the go-ahead goal in the Philadelphia Union's 2-1 win over Colorado.

Jamie Smith had pulled Colorado even 1-1 with a tally in the 68th minute, taking Deshorn Brown's pass and booting the ball over a leaping Zac MacMath into the corner of the net.

But the Union (1-1-0) mounted a counter-attack only 11 minutes later in which Antoine Hoppenot found McInerney with a through ball and Philadelphia forward put it past Matt Pickens for the decisive score.

Amobi Okugo scored in the 34th minute for the Rapids (0-2-0), who fell in their home opener for the first time in 10 years.

The game was originally scheduled to be played Saturday but was postponed by one day due to a snowstorm.
