The Seattle Sounders are continuing a trend of winning their home games, pretty much a requirement to stay in playoff contention as we approach the halfway point of the season.

This games featured an interesting lineup, with Cristian Roldan in an advanced central midfield position, a bionic Will Bruin back at striker, and Gustav Svensson in his most comfortable position in defensive midfield. We also saw the long-awaited return of Aaron Kovar in a substitute appearance. So, how did the individual players do in this one?
