Valeri opens the scoring late in the first half

Chances were flying quickly throughout the first half, with Jordan Morris getting the best of them for the Sounders, but it was unfortunately the Timbers who notched the first in the match. In the 44th minute, Diego Valeri left Tyrone Mears and Osvaldo Alonso in his dust and charged towards the Sounders penalty box. The defense couldn't get organized quickly enough, and Valeri took his shot well to curl it past Stefan Frei and into the net.
