Colorado needed just 14 seconds to find goal against the visiting Seattle Sounders – and that was officially the organization’s fastest goal and the second fastest to begin any game in MLS history.
Only a goal by Dwayne De Rosario back in 2003, (playing then for San Jose) happened quicker.
The opening kickoff went back to veteran defender Drew Moor, whose long ball forward was corralled by Gabriel Torres. Torres found Brown with a clever ball, and the Rapids rookie his No. 8 on the year, using all that speed to get in along on Sounders goalkeeper Michael Gspurning.
Brown scored another before the half as Oscar Pareja’s team put four past Seattle goalkeeper Michael Gspurning before the break. With nine goals, the young Jamaican is just two off the league rookie record of 11 goals (set by Chicago’s Damani Ralph in 2003).
Here is the historically quick Brown goal from Saturday (in a match the Rapids would eventually win, 5-1):
