Not a bad way to start the season. For the first time since 2015, the Sounders won their first season opener, overwhelming expansion FC Cincinnati 4-1 in a match that probably could have been even more lopsided. Their four goals actually equaled their goal-scoring output of their past six March home matches combined and it featured Kelvin Leerdam’s first goal since 2017, Jordan Morris’ first goal at CenturyLink Field in nearly two years and Raul Ruidiaz’s sixth straight game with a goal. All in all, pretty satisfying stuff.
