This is an example of a game where the scoreline doesn’t really tell the whole story. The Sounders were under a lot of pressure in the first half and could have given up more than one goal, but a combination of Stefan Frei’s saves and bad finishing from LA kept it close long enough for Seattle to turn on the jets later on.
On the other hand, there was plenty of strong and gritty play to find a way not just back into the game but into a 3-goal lead. How did the defenders do in dealing with the skilled and unpredictable LA attackers? How did Seattle’s subs do in cementing the win? And how about that Jordan Morris?
Rate, and rate quickly, because it’s a three-game week.
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
