By the Numbers: Rapids pile up shots

New, comments

The Sounders were in danger of getting run over in the first half, despite leading, but settled down nicely.

1: Clint Dempsey picked up an assist, meaning he's registered at least  a point in all but one of his past 15 regular-season appearances.

8: Stefan Frei made eight saves, which is the third most in Sounders history and equaled his season total up to this point. It was, however, the most saves a Sounders goalkeeper has made in a win. Kasey Keller made 10 saves in that 4-0 loss to the Earthquakes in 2009 and nine saves in a 3-1 loss to Philadelphia in 2010. Six of Frei's saves also came in the first half, which was a Sounders record.

9: A week after putting 10 shot on frame, the Sounders put nine shots on frame. That's the fifth highest total in Sounders history.

10: Lamar Neagle now has 10 shots on goal -- and 12 shots overall -- which is good for fourth most in MLS and two more than any of his Sounders teammates. All of those shots have come in Neagle's past two games after he had failed to take a single shot in his first four matches, all starts.

14: There's no team the Sounders have dominated more thoroughly than the Rapids, as this was the 14th time they've beaten Colorado in 18 meetings across all competitions. Twelve of those wins were in the regular season, by far the most against any opponent.

21.7: The Rapids are averaging 21.7 shots per home game, the best figure in MLS. All those shots have only led to one goal, though.

24: Neagle now has 24 goals in his Sounders career, passing Eddie Johnson for third on the all-time list.

27: The Rapids were able to fire off a rather astonishing 27 shots, which was the most the Sounders have ever allowed in a match. The previous record was 26 shots, which coincidentally was in another game the Sounders won by two goals (at Montreal on March 23, 2014).

44: The Sounders and Rapids combined to take 44 shots, the most ever in a Sounders match.

15,044: Osvaldo Alonso became the first Sounders player to surpass 15,000 career minutes with the club. Brad Evans is the only other player with as many as 11,000 minutes.
