Seattle Sounders vs. Columbus Crew, preseason: Stats and quotes

“Am i going to take stock in a loss, or am I going to be more informed about how we lost, why we lost, why we couldn’t generate more attacking movements?” -Brian Schmetzer

The Seattle Sounders lost 1-0 to a first-choice Columbus Crew squad in the final preseason warmup before the 2017 MLS season begins. A late goal from Crew draftee Niko Hansen sunk the Sounders, who had a few good looks on net but took a long time to find rhythm going forward in attack.

Seattle now prepare for an away trip to Houston to start the 2017 campaign on March 4.
