From the News Tribune (Tacoma, WA):
DENVER - The Seattle Sounders survived a 40-minute rain delay, the absence of coach Alan Hinton and the determined attack of the Colorado Foxes for a 2-1 shootout victory Friday night in front of a Mile High Stadium crowd of 5,755.

The Sounders (4-0) remained undefeated in the A-League but fell out of first because their shootout victory was worth only two points. The Sounders have 11 points, while the Montreal Impact (4-0, 12 points) stayed unbeaten with a 1-0 victory over Vancouver worth three points.

Hinton missed the game, remaining in Seattle to care for his wife, who was injured in an accident. In his place, team captain Neil Megson coached his first victory.

The Sounders scored in the 15th minute as forward Chance Fry cracked in his first goal of the season.

The Foxes evened it in the 65th minute when Jeff Hooker scored.

Light rain pelted the match from midway through the first half. Referee Philippe Camus suspended the match in the 83rd minute when lightning hovered overhead.

After the game ended tied, Peter Hattrup and Dick McCormick scored in the shootout while keeper Marcus Hahnemann shut out Colorado.

FWIW: I have been informed by a couple people that a 1-1 draw followed by 2-0 shootout translates to a "2-1 shootout victory." For some reason, a shootout win adds 1 goal to the final game score.

FWIW^2: These added "goals" do not add to the 'goals forced' and 'goals allowed' stats.

FWIW^3: The Sounders had a draw.
