COMMERCE CITY, Colo., April 20 (UPI) --
Obafemi Martins scored his first MLS goal in 27th minute Saturday and the Seattle Sounders recorded their initial victory over the season, 1-0 over Colorado.

It was just the third goal for the season for Seattle.
The Rapids (2-4-2) had their best chance in the 58th went Sounder goalkeeper Michael Gspurning was forced to make a diving save on header by Danny Mwanga.
