SEATTLE -- For the Seattle Sounders, one was enough on Saturday afternoon, as they condemned the Colorado Rapids to a club record-equaling sixth defeat in row.

Clint Dempsey tallied a highlight-reel 52nd-minute goal off a Marco Pappa corner kick and the Seattle defense took care of the rest, paving the way for a 1-0 victory over the Rapids at CenturyLink Field.
