Marco Etcheverry scored his first MLS goal since June 17, 2000, curving a wicked free kick into the Chicago goal to spark a 2-0 win over Chicago on Saturday. ... Etcheverry, who scored 25 goals in his first five years, went without a strike during his subpar 2001 season. He gave an inspired performance in UnitedGs home opener. ... UnitedGs Honduran defender Milton ReyesG assisted Abdul Thompson Conteh, who turned on a Fire defender to blast home UnitedGs second goal from 7 yards out. The Colorado Rapids beat 2001 champion San Jose, 1-0, during a particulary tame effort from the Earthquakes. Landon Donovan, who played against Germany in Rostock on Wednesday, looked fatigued and the QuakesG were unable to muster offense from anywhere else. The RapidsG scored in the fourth minute after San Jose keeper Joe Cannon bobbled a 25-yard John Spencer rocket. Cannon blocked Chris HendersonGs shot off the first rebound, but Mark Chung buried the second rebound. Carlos Valderrama was ejected late in the game for a cleats-up foul on Donovan.
