Seattle Sounders at Colorado Rapids WPA where it just does not feel like a win.

The Seattle Sounders did come away from a 1-0 win against the Colorado Rapids, though it still feels like a loss due to the Brian Mullan tackle on Steve Zakuani. We're not going to show the full package of highlights because I don't want to see that play again. And in effort to look at just the game there will be no quotes, just the dry hard facts as relates to the match. Above the fold you'll see the standard stats, you can click on the image for the full win probability chart and below the break the Opta powered data as well the Fredy Montero goal.
