This week in Sounders gifs: Barrett heads to the duty-free and witness a "Pinedaka." (Animated)

New, 67 comments

The Seattle Sounders FC and Vancouver Whitecaps had a typically classic Cascadia battle which could've featured more than just a few goals but ended in a 2-2 draw. The Sounders soaked up an early siege by Vancouver and took the lead on a Chad Barrett header. They would have to battle back after giving up two to the Whitecaps and did so with style as Gonzalo Pineda pulled off the "panenka" on a late penalty kick. Hopefully they remembered to declare that stolen point on their way back over the border.

Chad Barrett rises up and heads it in for the first goal.

The multi-pass build up that leads to Barrett's goal:

Probably the easy vote for the biggest defensive breakdown of the day:

Obafemi Martins comes so tantalizingly close to scoring and stealing all three points. Great ball in by Marco Pappa:

Oba knows how close that was:
