Sounders take lead on Jordan Morris burst and goal

Turning another fullback, the Mercer Island native sprinted onto goal finishing the shot with a brilliant right-footed shot. The 2-1 lead in the 63rd minute is not insurmountable, but gives the Seattle Sounders a shot at victory.

It was the third time that the Sounders tried to get Morris free through his speed and passing, and it worked. Morris now has the American rookie record for goals with 11. He is now solo for 3rd in MLS for goals by a rookie.

Both teams are slowing down due to the heat. Brian Schmetzer inserted Nelson Haedo Valdez for a bit more energy and attacking threat on on set-pieces. Arena inserted Landon Donovan to try to get a game-tying goal.
