Jones Scores Again in Rapids Win


Former Revolution designated player Jermaine Jones scored his second goal in as many games for the Colorado Rapids in Saturday’s 3-1 win over the Seattle Sounders at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Co.

Jones headed through a Shkelzen Gashi free kick in the 20th minute to open the scoring during Saturday’s match. Last week, the 34-year-old midfielder scored in his Rapids debut to help lead his new team to 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls.

The U.S. international was traded to the Rapids in March for a first-round pick and allocation money after contract negotiations with the Revolution reached an impasse. In 28 regular season games for New England, Jones scored two goals and collected four assists and in 2014 helped lead them to their first MLS Cup appearance in seven years.

Jones and the Rapids will face the Revolution at Gillette Stadium on Sept. 3, two years to the date from which the physical midfielder made his home debut for New England.
