Yedlin scores, depleted Sounders tie Rapids 1-1

SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle's DeAndre Yedlin scored his first career goal five minutes after Colorado took the lead, and the Sounders tied the Rapids 1-1 Saturday, but snapped their seven-game winning streak against them.

The Sounders would have set an MLS record if they had beaten the Rapids an eighth straight time.

Drew Moor tapped in a goal off a corner from Nick LaBrocca to give the Rapids (8-7-7) a 1-0 lead in the 60th minute. Moor got in front of defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado for the open shot in front of the net.

Seattle striker Eddie Johnson (four goals) missed the game because he is with the United States for its Gold Cup quarterfinal match versus El Salvador on Sunday. Nine other Sounders are injured, including regular goalkeeper Michael Gspurning, who did not play the second half of a 1-0 loss to San Jose on July 13 due to an arm injury.

Yedlin got his chance after Lamar Neagle blasted a shot off the far post. Yedlin kicked a shot that goalkeeper Clint Irwin blocked right back to Yedlin for his header.

Colorado's Hendry Thomas blasted a shot off a free kick past the defensive wall in the 81st minute but goalkeeper Andrew Weber dived left to tip the ball away.

Seattle (7-7-4) had lost three of its last four. A victory would have given the Sounders their first five-game home winning streak.
