Colorado Rapids slipped to their second defeat of the season when they went down 3-1 to Seattle Sounders at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night.
The visitors nearly always had their noses in front but they did not breathe easily until 17 minutes from time when Obafemi Martins swiveled into space skillfully after controlling a long ball from Andy Rose then slipped home a shot.

On the game…
Welcome Rapids Fans,
While the players and coaching staff focus on this evening’s match at home to Seattle Sounders FC, I must take a quick moment to reflect on the 4-0 win at FC Dallas in our previous outing. It was a superb, all-round team effort, from our technical team to the outstanding players on the field. Yes, it was just one game and just one result, but it was also the team’s third successive clean sheet on the road, which is a clear indication of the preparation this group made during preseason to improve defensively.
El fútbol debe ser emocionante.
