Sounders vs. Rapids, recaps: Two more scrimmages happened

Sounders tie first, lose 2-0 in second.

Still significantly short-handed, the Seattle Sounders got two more scrimmages under their belts on Tuesday. In the first game, they used mostly first-team players and tied the Colorado Rapids 1-1 behind a goal from Raúl Ruidíaz. The second game featured mostly Tacoma Defiance and Sounders Academy players, which they lost 2-0. Both games were 75 minutes long.

Perhaps the most notable development was that Nicolás Lodeiro played his first minutes of the preseason. Lodeiro started the first game and played 24 minutes before being replaced by Sam Adeniran.

The Sounders were able to salvage a tie in that game after allowing a 40th minute goal to Lucas Estevez. The equalizer came in the 70th minute when Ruidíaz finished off a rebound from an Adeniran shot.

The Sounders will now head back to Seattle where they’ll train for about a week.
