We witnessed a hat trick, a road win, and a critical three points for the Seattle Sounders if they have any hope of extending their season past October 23. It has been a while since we had a match to rate where the Sounders not only played well for most of the 90 minutes but also rained down the goals.
So in game two, how is Nicolas Lodeiro stacking up? Is he making the players around him better or is he just the last piece of an already almost-really-good puzzle? How about that Flaco Fernandez?
How did the individual players fare in Florida against Jason Kreis and Orlando City SC?
Here's the scale:
(Substitutes can be left blank if the 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 - MLS MVP-quality performance
