In leg one of the Western Conference Finals, the Seattle Sounders walked into BBVA Compass Stadium and did something they had never done before. With their first win in Houston, the Sounders are exquisitely set up for the upcoming home leg. Backup goalkeeper Tyler Miller stepped in to continue Seattle’s various shutout streaks, and the attack caused Houston trouble in a variety of ways. Still, in spite of two away goals, there was a lingering sense that the Sounders could have punished the 10-man Houston side to a greater extent.
With all that in mind (and before all that gravy clouds your thoughts), rate your Sounders.
