Sounders vs. Sporting Kansas City, Desert Diamond Cup: Highlights and stats

The Seattle Sounders haven't quite gotten the results they'd want against MLS competition yet this offseason, but we haven't exactly seem them give it an honest go either. The scoreline in this one probably looked a bit sloppier than the run of play actually was, but there's at least reason to be less than pleased with the state of the defense.
