Richard Farley looks at the week in Seattle following another tough 1-0 loss; "If you’re not worried, worry."

The Sounders U23s rebounded after their late US Open Cup loss to Kitsap Pumas, winning their PDL opener 2-0 over Crossfire PDL. The U23s will have a chance to avenge their Open Cup loss against the Pumas this coming Saturday.

The Sounders Women also opened their season with a win, beating Vancouver NSGSC 2-0.

MLS

We've seen Colorado for ourselves twice now this season to no avail. Burgundy Wave looks at the offseason roster transformation (bringing in two former Sounders) that's got the Rapids at the top of the table.
