NWSB Insider and Seattle Sounders writer Clinton Bell brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from Saturday nights match up with the Colorado Rapids. Finally we are winners again in MLS Play! The return of Steve Zakuani against Brian Mullan has finally happened, and Alvaro Fernandez scored his first goal of the year. Sigi Schmid has to be happy with this result. Maybe the new lineup sans Fredy Montero is a sign of things to come.

Not a whole lot of great scoring chances, but Cordell Cato and Zach Scott both had excellent chances. The defense, led by Jhon Kennedy Hurtado kept the Sounders in this game and forced the draw.
