Brown scores 2 as Rapids beat Sounders 5-1
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Deshorn Brown scored twice, the first 13 seconds into the game, and the Colorado Rapids beat the undermanned Seattle Sounders 5-1 Saturday night.
Brown’s initial goal set the record for the quickest in franchise history. Dwayne De Rosario holds the MLS mark with his score 11 seconds in for San Jose against Dallas on Sept. 27, 2003.
Dillon Powers, Gabriel Torres and Drew Moor added goals for Colorado (13-9-9). The Rapids, 4-2-0 over their last six games, moved into third place ahead of idle Los Angeles in the Western Conference.
Eddie Johnson scored for Seattle (15-9-6). The Sounders were 1-0-1 in the first two meetings and dropped to 9-2-2 all-time against Colorado.
The Sounders were without leading scorer Obaemi Martins (hip), midfielder Clint Dempsey (hamstring) and defenders Djimi Traore (hamstring) and Leo Gonzalez (hip/groin).
