Colorado Rapids rookie Deshorn Brown scores second fastest goal in MLS history
Colorado Rapids rookie forward Deshorn Brown scored just 15 seconds into Saturday's 5-1 home win over Seattle, making it the second fastest goal scored in Major League Soccer history.
[The official time was changed from 13 to 15 seconds by Major League Soccer after the review from statisticians, Opta. MLS notes that the official time of events is kept by Opta, not the clock on TV broadcasts]
Brown also scored the third goal of the game, giving him nine goals this season, the most by a Rapids player since 2010 (Omar Cummings, 14 goal).
On September 27, 2003, San Jose forward Dwayne De Rosario scored after just 11 seconds in his team's 5-2 win over Dallas.
Brown's goal was also, obviously, the fastest goal scored in Rapids history. The previous mark was held by Conor Casey, who on April 4, 2009 scored 16 seconds into the team's 3-2 win over the LA Galaxy.
