Yep, the 1-1 draw in Kansas City tonight was very, very good to the Seattle Sounders. According to the notes in today's preview the result was enough to qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs.

  • If Sporting KC and Philadelphia play to a tie on Friday, Sounders FC will be assured of a spot in the MLS Cup Playoffs. They will also secure their berth with a single point vs. Vancouver, or if Colorado loses, or Houston ties or loses, or New York and Portland tie.

  • While Sporting Kansas City looked likely winners, the Philadelphia Union came back to tie. The game-tying goal was slotted by a former Sounder. It would seem that Sebastien Le Toux is still able to help the Rave Green. While the opponent likely won't be known until the last week of the regular season, one of the goals of the team was met while they weren't even playing.
