You may have read this in the comments of the last post, but the Sounders won last night 2-1 over the Philadelphia Union.
Seattle Sounders 2, Philadelphia Union 1
Seattle continued its strong play with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union thanks to a strong defensive effort from the Sounders back line and goalkeeper Rodney Greiling. Both of Seattle's goals were courtesy of defenders - Michael Gallagher and Ian Lange, respectively. Midfielder Aaron Kovar, a standout for Seattle thus far, delivered an inswinging corner kick that Gallagher redirected with a sharp header for the first goal. Lange then got on the end of a loose ball in the box after another Kovar corner to give Sounders FC a 2-0 halftime lead.
The report on the second half, and stats can be seen here.
Group A is toss-up with three teams that could win. Group C will either be Houston or Chivas who face off tomorrow as well. Group D is a three team race for the final day as well. Only the Group winners advance in the tournament.
Here are the linescores for the two matches so far
SEA -- Aaron Kovar 1 (Travis Strawn 1) 12
SEA -- Michael Gallagher 1 (Aaron Kovar 1)
SEA -- Ian Lange 1 (unassisted)
Seattle's keeper (Rodney Geiling) has given up a goal a game, but all indications are that he has been performing better than expected.
