Sports
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - Keegan Rosenberry scored his first goal of the season, Andre Shinyashiki added his second goal in two games and the Colorado Rapids beat the Seattle Sounders 3-1 on Sunday night.

Rosenberry blasted a low volley from just outside the top of the area inside the post to give the Rapids a 2-1 lead in the 42nd minute. Defender Kelvin Leerdam redirected a Colorado corner kick, but Rosenberry was there to put away his fifth career MLS goal.

Cole Bassett also scored for Colorado. The Rapids (6-6-4) bounced back from consecutive losses to move ahead of the San Jose Earthquakes into seventh in the Western Conference standings.

Shinyashiki, selected No. 5 overall in the 2019 SuperDraft, opened the scoring in the 11th minute. On the attack, Nicolas Benezet rolled a pass to left side where Sam Vines played an arcing one-touch pass to the centre of the area and Shinyashiki slipped a header inside the far post. The 23-year-old has scored in back-to-back games for the first time in his career and has a goal in four of the last six matches.

Seattle’s Jordan Morris redirected a cross by Cristian Roldan into the net to make it 1-1 in the 22nd. The Sounders (10-5-5) had their three-game unbeaten streak snapped.
