This Week In Sounders Gifs: Taking the bull by the horns (animated)

New, comments

The Seattle Sounders FC found a way to overcome a smothering New York Red Bulls defense and a goal deficit to come back and win the game in extra time 2-1. A goal by in-form Marco Pappa and the late winner by Clint Dempsey and/or Chad Barrett lead to more than a few moments to capture.

Cristian Roldan aka SEA-R7 with a nice headed chance saved by NYRB GK Luis Robles:

Osvaldo Alonso makes some sweet moves and then shoots a lazer across the field to Marco Pappa - who then of course traps/flips it to himself:

This Bradley Wright-Phillips possible handball happened right before Brad Evans made his saving tackle on a sure easy chance on goal:

In the stadium, this 88th minute "Boom Boom Clap" was some dark magic that surely conjured up a winning goal:
