With a game-winning goal that's a bit of a fluke and a defense that was as lucky as it was good these ratings should lead to interesting discussions about who performed well and who disappointed. Are the single moments of brilliance enough for Seattle Sounders like Clint Dempsey, Andy Rose and Dylan Remick to earn praise? Is Stefan Frei's late error going to hurt him? Will Sounder at Heart readers like the on-ball work of Nagbe, the destruction of Chara, the defense of Borchers or Powell's flare? We'll find out later. Make ratings now.
A reminder of the scale:
0 or blank - player did not play enough to judge
1 - not a pro (USL/NASL/MLS) quality performance
4 - average USL starter
6 - average MLS starter
9 - MLS All Star
10 - MVP quality performance
This same scale will be used for competitive matches of both Sounders FC and S2.
