With a record well below expectations it is time for the Seattle Sounders to enter the warm embrace of CenturyLink Field. They need to reach into the core of their being and force Real Salt Lake to adjust to Sounders soccer. An early heaven-sent goal would go quite a long way to helping Schmetzer’s side get back into the win column. Shackling the attacking three for RSL will not be easy, but their misery is key.
It’s time to end the sorrow and watch a win.
Kevin Stott is the center referee.
