Sounders reserves settle for tie vs. Colorado

The Sounders reserves got an early goal from Chad Barrett, his second in the MLS Reserve League, but ultimately settled for a 1-1 tie Sunday against Colorado.

The Rapids equalizer came from forward Danny Mwanga, a former No. 1 overall draft pick, in the 63rd minute.

Perhaps more important than the score was Brad Evans being able to play 45 minutes in his steady return to regular action after a nagging calf injury. He played at right back, which could prove useful in the road to the World Cup.

Also, Andy Rose went a full 90 for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury.
